Green Point Shiraz Yarra Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Green Point was established by the Champagne house Moët & Chandon over 20 years ago in the Yarra Valley, in the southeastern state of Victoria. Cool ocean breezes create ideal conditions for the grapes to develop ripe fruit flavors, while retaining their elegance, finesse, and complexity.

Great flavor shiraz, opened the bottle on the Oceanfront at a Bed and Breakfast in Yachats, Oregon. Lots of berry flavor, a slight spicy tang and a sweet finish that lingered for about a half of minute which caused me to drink faster.........no problem. It also had a beautiful deep color which reflected on the sand. I will purchase another couple of bottles at a wine shop in Portland Oregon. Lefty - The Great Pacific Northwest

This is a really nice shriaz. Deeply colored, but very mild. Nice fruit, lower acidity but enough tanins to keep it lively. Black cherry, and berry notes with a short but pleasant finish.

Strong and Smooth. The spice worked well with our Sushi dinner. It was a surprising red to enjoy with our dinner.

Smooth and round. Offers a juicy mouthful of currant and blackberry flavors shaded with tiny hints of roasted meat and cedar. The finish doesn't quit. Drink now through 2013. 5,000 cases imported. -HS A blend specifically targeted at the U.S. market, this 51% Cab-49% Shiraz marries Cabernet's mint and cassis with Shiraz's savory plum and spice. Tannins are soft, but there's still enough structure on the finish that this wine can pair with fattier cuts of beef or lamb. - J.C. ** Only 8 in Stock **

Bright and juicy, with an interesting waxy edge to the blueberry and currant fruit, finishing on the crisp side and lingering especially well. Drink now through 2011. 8,000 cases imported. -HS
