Grant Burge Nebuchadnezzar 2003
This wine is a drier, more austere style, showing a deep red colour with a complex nose of stewed fruit, prunes, spices and ripe raspberries. The fruit flavours carry over to the palate which is big and intense with plenty of flavour and a big mouth-feel. The fruit and oak integration is well developed, giving an intensity to the palate and a long finish with fine tannins.
The wine has a nice bright color, but not the color most Shiraz I've had from Australia. This is a blend from Barossa Valley and haven't had enough tastings to figure out what makes a Barossa Valley Shiraz distinctive from other areas. Bright fruit, cherry and earthy flavors come through. Reminds me of an Italian wine like a Chianti, Sangiovese or Barbera livened up with hint of port. A good buy at 17.00, but I wouldn't pay the 31.00 listed online.
