Top Value Shiraz Tasted 3/14

4. Nederburg Shiraz the Winemaster's Reserve (2009)

« Prev Next » 4 of 9
Is that South African terroir or is there some Pinotage in here? A little rubbery and with the notes of burning rubber that are often found in Pinotage, this does show plenty of jammy, somewhat wild plum fruit on the nose with subtle shadings of chocolaty used oak and peppery accents Bright, round and well balanced on entry,there's a polish here that lends this a touch of elegance in the mouth. the flavors show the wines age. A little dusty, and polished of all bright edges and angles this retains plum skin fruit with subtle earthy, leathery and floral accents along with a hint of black pepper on the backend. Stumbling a bit on the finish, this remains attractive subtle and very well knit together until the slightly hard, but appropriate tannins kick in on the finish. The more I go back to this the more attractive it becomes. 87pts
