Food Pairings for Amon-Ra Shiraz Barossa
External Reviews for Amon-Ra Shiraz Barossa
2008 is the 8th release of Amon-Ra shiraz and the smallest volume since the tiny 2003 vintage - even lower than the 2007 make. To decrease the total make of Amon-Ra once again has been essential to maintain the quality of the wine. The strict fruit selections we have made in this vintage have been rigorous and uncompromising. We are always willing to sacrifice quantity for quality. The key to Amon-Ra shiraz is balancing the extraction rather than maximizing it as the fruit as such expression that we aim to preserve the characteristics of the vineyard rather than dominate them. At release, the 2008 Amon-Ra is more forward and lifted than the 2007. The difficulty this vintage was harnessing the intensity of fruit, and balancing different levels of ripeness. Harvesting key parcels of excellent fruit before the heat spike was crucial. The Amon-Ra has captured the intensity of fruit of this vintage, and retains its trademark elegance, finesse and balance. Cellaring: 15 + years.
Firm and compact on the palate it has plenty of spicy fruit, decent depth, and moderate length. It will evolve for a few years.
