Tried this monovarietal shiraz at a winetasting last night and was highly impressed. Full body flavor that you would expect from a shiraz and was definitely the most popular at the tasting. Kicking myself for only purchasing 1 bottle.

With dark inky color and bright purple edges, the Pillar Box Reserve was selected from the best parcels of Shiraz is a rich and densely concentrated wine. Intense blackcurrant aromas combine with toasted spice and graphite minerality to give a complex and lifted bouquet. The palate is fleshy at the start; showing ripe plum and blackcurrant fruits, then building in the mid palate with graphite, cedar toast and garam marsala spice characters. The tannins are fine and velvety, leading into a refined and gratifying finish.

We’ve known and loved the classic Pillar Box red label blend for several vintages, but this is the first time we’ve picked up the black label Reserve Shiraz. With a greater intensity of fruit and spice, this is a powerful red, perfect for BBQ ribs or slow-cooked stews with lots of herbs.

Firm, focused and juicy, with guava, currant and white pepper flavors, coming together smoothly against refined tannins on the lingering finish. Best from 2014 through 2019.

Another hit from renowned Shiraz producer Chris Ringland, this lush and jammy Shiraz is massive yet smooth.

Inky ruby. Aromas of crushed blackberry, licorice, chocolatey oak and clove. Supple, sweet and full, with gentle acidity providing delineation to the dark berry compote flavors. Finishes with lingering notes of sweet dark berries and white pepper.

The 2008 Pillar Box Reserve Shiraz spent 8 months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it delivers an alluring nose of cedar, lavender, pepper, and blueberry. Concentrated and layered on the palate, it has more than ample succulent fruit, good balance, and enough structure to ensure 4andndash;5 years of pleasurable drinking.
