Milton Park Shiraz 2007

Member Review by ChipDWood:

For south of ten bucks ($9.99) this is a surprisingly nice little wine. It's not going to blow your mind- but it's certainly not a waste, and for the buck it beats out a good chunk of its competition. Ruby in color, the nose is about what one would expect in the range; tinged with hints of currant, black pepper. Light to medium bodied in mouthfeel and weight, the wine opens up simply (and pleasantly) on the palate displaying (again) currants and pepper, those also polished with a bit of herb on the finish- which is more substantial than 80% of the wines at its price point. A fairly well-balanced effort that shows pleasantly in the finish. One could do a lot worse for less than ten bucks. I gave it an 86 on my notes, and would recommend it at that price.

Big bunch of MEH. Too hot on the frontend, too thin for what I've come to expect out of Aussie Shirazes, very one-note on the nose. Finish saves it with a touch of swirling berry on the tongue.

My favorite under $10 Syrah. Fruit, spice and a good value.

You just can't beat this exceptional value Shiraz. Red raspberry, pomegranate, plum, star anise, and white pepper notes all vie for dominance. Richly textured, with a great, smooth mouthfeel - this wine is always a winner, and a Premier staff pick since the 2002 vintage!

Fresh and open-textured, offering pure blackberry fruit, with white pepper and beef carpaccio hints on the refreshing finish. Drink now.

Ruby-red. Jammy blackberry and mulberry on the nose; reminds me of a zinfandel. Fresh, juicy dark berry flavors display a nice combination of poise and sweetness, with mocha and candied licorice notes adding complexity. Soft, silky and sweet on the concentrated, persistent finish. There are no apparent tannins to get in the way of the vibrant fruit. This is one serious bargain.

An incredible value, this Shiraz shows loads of peppery blackberry along with hints of spicy oak. Fresh and lively in the mouth, clean, firm and fruity on the finish, this wine is wonderfully drinkable now.

An outrageous value, the 5,000-case cuvée of 2002 Shiraz Milton Park is an opaque purple-colored effort displaying loads of peppery, licorice-infused blackberry and cassis fruit. It is a big, succulent, South Australian fruit bomb to enjoy over the next 2-3 years.

This full-bodied Australian red features rich, plumy fruit with spicy overtones. It will stand up well with pasta, red meats and game.
