Oliverhill Winery Shiraz Mclaren Vale Jimmy Section 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"96 pts Wine Advocate Oct 2006 Issue #167 This outstanding trio of McLaren Vale reds performed beautifully. One of South Australia’s finest efforts is Oliverhill’s 2005 Shiraz Jimmy Section. Aged in 100% French oak (33% new) for 17 months, it is an unbelievably dense wine boasting an exquisite perfume of spring flowers, blackberry and blueberry jam, smoky pain grille, and graphite. Huge intensity, full body, and stunning concentration, richness, and length suggest this spectacular wine will age effortlessly for 10-15+ years. "

Huge, jammy, black fruit. Huge but balanced tannins and acidity. Velvety texture. Light medicine. Light raisin and smoke and pencil lead. Juicy. Ready, but still fruit left. Concentrated. Would stand up to food and red meat. 15.3%

Acid shows through on nose, with some jamminess. Medium tannins and acids, big body. Pleasantly sour, almost like a poor-man's 02 Smith-Haut-Lafitte. Red fruit. Mint chocolate. Good QPR @ $35

This outstanding trio of McLaren Vale reds performed beautifully. The 2005 Shiraz Clarendon (100% Shiraz) is a beauty. Dense purple to the rim, it exhibits an extraordinary bouquet of blueberry liqueur, white chocolate, mocha, espresso, ground pepper... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2005 Oliverhill Winery Shiraz Clarendon 750ml
