Community Tasting Notes 58

    February 3, 2019 - At 21 years this wine is still tasting great. It may be just past its peak, but maybe just. Still has nice fruit, but is showing so many other interesting notes. So many Aussie Shiraz are so big, this one is very elegant. Starting to turn garnet in color. Notes of plum, leather, and pepper on nose and palate. Still very nice acidity, tannins very smooth, and med body. Very well made wine

    November 8, 2018 - 2 hour decant. Getting a bit old now, definite brown around the edges but colour still fairly dense. Muted nose. Strong prune flavour, hints of shoe polish and chilli chocolate. NR due to age but I'm guessing it would have been a 94 or 95 a few years ago.

    December 8, 2017 - Surprisingly fine, light on its feet. Top class. No jarring alcohol or oak. Oodles of flavour.

    {14.5%, cork}.

    December 17, 2015 - Drank with Bryan with pork ragu. Incredible balance for Aussie Shiraz. Had a salty-mineral quality along with the expected dark fruit. Mature but definitely not over the hill. Will drink the remaining one over the next 2 years.
