Yarra Yering Shiraz Yarra Valley Underhill 2004
Shiraz: "Deep red. Intensely ripe aromas of blackberry, cola, licorice root and vanilla. A thick, almost oily shiraz, with flavors of black cherry and blackberry eau de vie, vanilla cola and cured meat. As viscous as this is, it also boasts impressive verve and finishes fat, velvety and sweet. You need to squeegee this clinging wine off your palate. This outsized shiraz has the density to age but is plenty enjoyable right now." 92 points Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
This is quite simply the nicest Shiraz I have ever had. Deep purple, hints of dark cherry, blueberry and vanilla, silky smooth velvet finish and just the right amount of sweetness to go. An absolute pleasure drinking, just a shame I only have the 1 bottle.
