Great shiraz, lovely aftertaste of fruits. The acidity is good--but for the sharpest fruits drink within the first two days of opening.

...big, rich bouquet of melted licorice, blackberry liqueur, pepper, and a hint of road tar. Ripe, full-bodied, supple-textured, and long, it should drink well for 5-10 years... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2003 Colonial Estate, The Shiraz l Explorateur 750ml

Auge: dichtes Pflaumenblau/Purpurrot; Nase: mildes Bukett mit Aromen schwarzer Beeren, edler Holzton, Noten von Geröstetem und Haselnüssen; Gaumen: im Mund fleischig, angenehm fruchtig mit samtigen Tanninen und einem sehr aromatischen, langlebigen Abgang.
