Annie's Lane Shiraz Clare Valley 2001
The wine is a vibrant deep purple in color with intense aromas of blackcurrant, violets, dark berries and a hint of chocolate on the nose. Aromas promised on the nose are delivered in a rich, concentrated and well-balanced full-bodied palate. A backbone of sweet oak and long velvety tannins complete the structure and the wine finishes with a silky mouthfeel and excellent length.
Annie Wayman was a legend in the Clare Valley. She could always be relied upon to bring along sandwiches and a warm drink to harvesters and pruners in the vineyard at the turn of the 20th century. One evening, Annie's horse and cart got bogged in a lane adjacent to one of the valley's best vineyards. Thus, Annie's Lane was born.
Only have one bottle left out of six. its a fantastic drop everytime.
Extremely inexpensive, this wine is easy on the palate and samples crisp berry tannins. In comparison to some of the more pricey wines, this one always gets a thumbs up. As for pairing it with a meal, I enjoy this one with a nice cut of fillet steak.
