External Reviews for Hazy Blur Shiraz Adelaide Plains
Polished, round and generous with its ripe, slightly pruny flavors, offering plum and stew spices as the finish persists. Drink now through 2010.
From 45-year old vines on the Adelaide Plains, the 2004 Shiraz displays spicy, earthy, ground pepper, creme de cassis, raspberry, and plum aromas as well as a dense, full-bodied, opulent personality. It will provide a significant mouthful of wine over the next 7ndash;8 years.
This Australian Shiraz, made up of 100% Shiraz grapes from 45-year-old vines, exhibits both an attractive fullness and a seductive smoothness that, together, create an extremely well-balanced wine. Deep purple in color; the nose is soft, with hints of cream and blackberry. Soft tannins give way to a mildly spicy finish that is balanced by a touch of oak and caramel. Perfect for those seeking a sophisticated wine to pair with grilled meats or to show off at a party.
Hazyblur makes a stunning range of Shiraz from South Australia. The Adelaide Plains bottling is sourced from Sergi's Block on alluvial river flats. The vines are 45 years old and yielded a mere 2 tons per acre. The wine was matured in American oak, mainly second use, for 16 months. Rated 91 by America's most famous critic. Dense and streamlined and offering superb fruit qualities, this outstanding Shiraz is deeply flavored and long on the palate.
