Amberton Wines Shiraz Barossa Valley 2001

Member Review by abryksa:

You know when you get a gift and you are mildly disappointed, and sock it away until you finally use it and its bloody fantastic? That is my experience with this old girl from Barossa. We each got one for xmas and boy o boy, she was a favourite mistake. This wine has a beautiful purplish orange color to it and by now, the tannins are perfectly relaxed and the bottles are glazed with sediment. Not so hot on it out of the bottle but with a little air via decanting, it presents pomegranates and raspberries with toasted coffee beans with a hint of cocoa. On the palate, an excellent presentation of berries, toasted oak with a port like sweetness that draws you to continue sipping. If you can find it, buy it and drink it right away as it will be a sure hit with purple lip and teeth crowd. Outstanding on its own. 92 points

Amberton Wines:
Amberton is an Australian winery that was founded by a group of doctors with a passion for wine. They began their journey in 1975 in the town of Mudgee in New South Wales and built their first winery a few years later. In 1990, they moved operations to a state of the art facility in South Australia’s Barossa Valley. Their focus is on single varietal styles such as Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon offered at affordable prices.
