2005 Barossa Shiraz - 75 Years
The color belies the youth of this wine with an attractive ripe cherry red rim and deep purple core. Aromas are more refined than you would expect from a vineyard of this age, with intense forest fruit characters literally leaping out of the glass. With a bit of teasing you will see the white pepper and spice aromas, but be prepared for the mulberry and red currant characters on the palate. A cleansing character of mint leaves and licorice flavors linger and testify that this wine is one that can be put down for quite a few years, more if so desired. Deep, sensuous wine—and an unbelievable deal.
