Community Tasting Note

    April 30, 2019 - Very good. A great example of an aged Barossa/Eden red blend now in full maturity, shame about the alcohol...

    WSET style tasting note
    Clear, medium, garnet
    Clean, pronounced nose with Primary (Black cherries, blackberry, olive tapenade), Secondary (charred wood, smoke) and Tertiary (leather, forest floor, mushroom, tobacco) aromas.
    Dry, medium acid, medium fine and fully resolved tannins, high alcohol (14.5%), medium (+) body, medium (+) flavour intensity of black plum, blackberries, olive tapenade, leather and mushroom. Medium (+) length.
    A very good wine, which at 15 years of age is displaying a broad and complex array of aromas and flavours. The wine exhibits a fairly pronounced intensity (particularly on the nose), and benefits from a reasonably long length. I would however question the balance here, in particular the high alcohol, which has not softened along with the other components of the wine through age and is now far more noticeable than ideal.
    Drink this now, it may well hold for a few years further, but will not improve.
