Turners Crossing Shiraz Blend Bendigo Shiraz Viognier 2006
Very deep red colour, the aroma has intense ripe red and black fruits with no overt jammy elements and some complex spiciness and savoury elements and slight Viognier aromatics. The palate is complementary to the aromas, rich, round and moderate in weight with intense fruit and some savoury, earthy elements, lovely framing spicy persistent tannins and lingering balanced mineral acidity. The wine is very complex and represents the classical Bendigo terrior in an excellent year. Although the wine is rich, it is ironically still “tight” and therefore, will also benefit with aging.
Tasted this wine last night and found it to be impressive in structure, spice and balance, despite the 14.5 alcohol, The palate is rich, ripe and full-bodied. Leather, tobacco, ripe dark plums and earthy spice on the nose.
