Editorial Reviews for Wild Duck Creek Shiraz Heathcote Springflat
Lots of oak on the nose. Rich chocolate scents are joined by spicy herbal tones, vanilla, leather, blackberry and some plummy notes. Comes off as a touch sweet on entry, but is followed by lovely, spicy herbal nuances and some cedary/toasty oak. The tannins are firm but remain beneath the fruit here, which is rich yet quite fresh, turning much more berried on the back end. On the finish, this falls a bit short, butwith attractive red cherry/currant fruit. Really well balanced, holds its alcohol effortlessly. 89 pts
An amazing Shiraz and probably one of the best yet. Has an abundance of alcohol which surprisingly isn't overstrong. Will develop further into a fine wine.
My daughters friend brought this wine to Thanksgiving dinner. This is a fine wine that leaves me wanting to find more wines from small Australian wineries. Love the fruit tones and color.
