Robust fruit on the nose with aromas of plum and black cherries alongside traces of mint, vanilla, and spice. Fairly fruit forward on the palate but still with a nice level of complexity from the other flavors. Full bodied with fine, firm tannins. Lengthy finish.

What's New in Booze - 9.3 out of 10 Unlike many of the Shiraz produced out of Australia, this wine is not the huge fruit bomb you typically find out of the land down under. It is actually a bit more old worldish in style offering a bit of spice and earth layered within the dark berry flavors.

Out of the bottle, this wines coloring is purplish black. It is so dark and concentrated that it cannot be seen through, even when put up to a light. The nose has aromas of freshly ground coffee, spices and herbs with a base of concentrated fruit (thinking plums, dark berries). There are additionally hints of toasted oak. In the mouth, there is powerful fruit up front moving into charred coffee and oak over a medium finish. It has uncompromisingly rich concentration with massive extraction. If you were to look up fruitbomb in the dictionary, you might find this wine referenced.

Great wine with good price. Not really deep, but has nice sourness and smoothness. I would say if you love a wine with nice fruit aromas and sourness (or bitter), try this one before you open your favorite one.

Dark inky red in colour, a nice bouquet hinting strongly of vanillin and cherries with a waft of chocolate, smooth on the palate and mildly tannic. Medium bodied and slightly long, it is indeed a pleasant red that will not be overwhelmed by strong food.

Lodge Hill shows a brilliant deep and dense ruby/ purple-tinged colour. Ripe blackberry and plum aromatics, sweet mocha and vanilla. Secondary impressions of mintyness and hints of pepper, further nuances of aniseed and of black cherry. The sweet cakey, almost leafy expressions of the wine slip onto the palate, Lodge Hill is graced by it's masculine Shiraz characters. The flavours are dense and complex, black cherry and mulberry fruit, with some subtle spice and vanillin oak. The long, juicy finish is balanced by soft and fine grained tannins. Fully suited to robust red dishes such as beef and kangaroo, Lodge Hill Shiraz is a medium-bodied, corpulent and fleshy wine, it is a delicious red and a terrific value.

This wine is inky in colour, with aromas of black cherry, dark plums, vanilla and chocolate. The palate is medium to full-bodied, displaying flavours of ripe black cherry, plum fruit and mocha characteristics. The fine grained talc-like tannins support a lingering velvety finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

In 1977 when Jim Barry first purchased the Lodge Hill property, his intention was to devote the entire area to Riesling. However, there was a small area which had a gentle slope facing north, capturing the warmer conditions of the elevated site and he decided that it was an ideal place to grow a premium Shiraz. The nose is aromatic and complex, with a combination of fruit and spice: Cinnamon, White Pepper, Cajun Spices, Mocha, Liquorice and Blackberry. The palate is approachable, offering notes of Menthol, Spearmint, Violets and Boysenberry. This is ready for immediate enjoyment with a view to cellaring for 7 to 10 years from vintage.
