Shiraz Adelaide Hills 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Adelaide Hills has now proven it can make truly exciting spicy Shiraz. The key is careful site selection, low yields and restrained use of oak. The blend component from the warmer sub-area of Macclesfield gives structure and richness, whilst Balhannah contributes spiciness and perfume. A vibrant, modern interpretation of Australian Shiraz.

A medium to full-bodied wine with that intense black purple colour so typical of Australian shiraz. Notes of blackberries, black cherry and crushed black peppercorns. Youthful ripe crushed berry juice of compote intensity, plenty of acidity. Moderate tannin load, that ease up on the long finish. Great for grilled meats. 89/100.

Ausgeprägte Pfefferaromen und Gewürznoten, gute Fülle und Länge im Gaumen. Ein Shiraz im modernen Stil vinifiziert und trotzdem mit den sortentypischen Aromen geprägt.
