Food Pairings for Clarendon Hills Shiraz Piggott Range Vineyard 2 In Stock
Flowers and berries leap from the glass at uncorking, adding beets, graphite, cream cheese and honey dew melon over the first 30 minutes, mixed in a cherry, raisiny, woody and herbal mélange. The nose dissipates after an hour and never fully opens again, owing perhaps to its age in the bottle (opened 5/14/2011), but the wine remains delicate, poised and interesting. The palate displays initially with sharp currant in the center behind a metallic coating on the front, opening in 30 minutes to a full array of red and dark fruits, including raspberry, cherry, plum, and raisin. The mouthfeel is heavy, with a velvety texture. At an hour, an undercurrent of chocolate and coffee emerges to deepen the palate, and a meaty flavor appears intermittently on the back, along with a citrus tang to round out the top. This particular bottle seemed to be just a tad past its peak when our group tasted it, but the wine had abundant signs of the masterpiece it surely once was.
