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.
A shiraz which was surprisingly full of fruits which showed themselves underneath the intense spices and oak. Like it!
A drinkable red wine, but has no personality to recommend it. Earthy overtones, herbaceous nose with some muted blackberry flavours, some tannins & some spice. We drank the 2002 in 2007 and its not going to develop any further, so drink now if you must. We paid £10, it’s really worth about £4. 14% alcohol
External Reviews for Annie's Lane Shiraz Clare Valley Copper Trail
Wine Tasting NotesThe Annie's Lane Shiraz is vibrant red with purple hues. Aromas of fruit, spice, blackberry and violets with a hint of chocolate develop into a medium full bodied palate with rich, soft berry fruit balanced with subtle smoky oak. This wine is supple, elegant and balanced with fine structure and long silky tannins.
