Alice White Shiraz 2009
External Reviews for Alice White Shiraz
Complex, spicy and peppery aromas with considerable depth of fruit character. Nicely structured but without any hard edges. Balances nicely with fine, ripe tannic support.
The simple, candied fruit has a brisk edge; the tannin will act as horseradish for roast beef.
Starts mute, but aromas build to butterscotch, cranberry and raisin scone. This really takes shape on the palate, with summer-ripe raspberry, white pepper and grilled meats. Finishes with a note of sweet green herbs.
This wine shows classic characteristics of Australian Shiraz - aromas of dried cherries, anise and eucalyptus. Medium body and moderate tannins on the palate combine to create a rich and intense wine for everyday enjoyment.
Fresh and simple, with appealingly ripe currant and plum flavors. Drink now.
Soft, ripe and generous with its cherry and grapey flavors. Fine nap of tannin on the finish. Drink now.
Is this giant the most likable red in our store? Fans of Shiraz will find what they're looking for in this wine's dense blueberry-tinged flavors, but those new to the grape (or to red wines in general) will love the bright fruitiness, smooth taste, and clean finish.
