Shiraz South Australia George Wyndham Founder's Reserve 2005
A great food wine with classic smooth fruit, oak and tannins... I think there is a good amount of good Hunter Valley fruit... a mini-me of a good wine... 89/100
Generous, smooth, silky and opulent – some of the epithets that comes to mind in describing this wine. Nice not overtly spicy and big unlike some other Aussie shiraz. Gentle with nice tannins to supplement rather than overwhelm.
Excellent shiraz for the money. Lots of plum and spice with enough oak to really fill it out.
Smooth, rich with depth. A dependably good wine.

91 Points - Wine Spectator"Distinctive, with depth and mouthwatering balance to showcase the earthy, meaty cherry and beet flavors, hinting at licorice on the long, expressive finish. Best from 2012 through 2017. 200 cases imported." -H.S.

Secondary hints ofeucalypt, dark chocolate and vanilla bean harmonise with the fruits.PalateRipe blackberry and plum fruits dominate initially with nuances ofvanillan oak and chocolate in support. Soft velvety tannins give thewine persistence and length. The flavours are long lasting and youare left mesmerised awaiting the next mouthful
