Pikes Shiraz Clare Valley Eastside 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Deep red - almost black. Aroma: Super ripe blueberry, plum and blackberry Shiraz fruit with some dark chocolate and licorice notes as well. These are all complimented nicely by a touch of charry French oak somewhere in the mix. Palate:The palate is soft and powerful with flavours of blueberry, plum and charry oak overlaying a core of dark chocolate running through the mid palate. Silky tannins on the finish adds length and a little structure to the ripe, plush fruit. Summary: A lovely example of Clare Valley Shiraz. No problem in enjoying this as a youthful wine, but as usual 4-7 + years will see some development occur in the wine and amply repay those like more complex aged characters in their reds.
