Buckshot Shiraz Heathcote 2008

Member Review by jaye:

Dry for Aussie Shiraz, not a fruit bomb. When I first opened this wine fruit was difficult to detect, but 2nd day wine had a bit more flavor. Typical plum and cherry notes -- but very different from most Austrailian Shiraz.

From a relatively young Victoria vineyard (11 years of age), there are 500 cases of this beautifully made, barrel-aged (both French and American) Shiraz. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by aromas of blueberries, smoke, and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, with sensational intensity, modest alcohol for a Shiraz of this size (14.2%), and moderate tannin, it will benefit from 1-2 more years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following 12-15 years. Lithe and appealing for its racy blackberry, blueberry and white pepper aromas and flavors. Lively, lingering finish. Not a blockbuster, but has tremendous class. Drink now through 2012. 400 cases made. -HS ** Only 16 in stock **
