- Closure: Cork
The 2004 Tatiarra collection is an utter triumph for Tatiarra's 'dream team' (viticulturists, Ian Rathjen & Bob Wilson together with winemakers Ben Riggs & Peter Flewellyn). Their triumph is only over-shadowed by the loss of Tatiarra co-founder and C.F.O., Bill Spring, who passed away in September. These wines are dedicated to the vision he shared with Nick Chlebnikowski: to produce the world's finest expressions of Shiraz. With the release of the 2004 Tatiarra Collection, that vision is now reality.
A flamboyant, pure concentrate of Heathcote Shiraz
After more than 10 years in bottle the colour of this wine has barely changed, currently displaying a magnificent impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark red black hue. Potent aromas of ripe blackberries, liquorice and dark plum soar from the glass overlaying dark chocolate, toasty vanillin oak, subtle earthy leather and spice. Super concentrated and decadently rich with a thick voluptuous textural feel the palate is completely saturated with waves of liquorice, ripe blackberry and dark plum fruit that overlay a back drop of toasty oak, scorched earth, subtle chocolately leather and blackpepper. Extraordinarily powerful with superb depth the tannins appear velvet like beneath the huge core of fruit, yet still have great underlying structure. Exceptionally long aftertaste of liquorice, ripe blackberries, black cherries, toasty vanillin oak, scorched earth, subtle spicy chocolatey leather and pepper.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
Originally tasted October 2005:
The colour is a complete saturate of black purple - a common feature of the entire collection and indicative of the intense flavour profiles that follow. Roll the wine around in the glass and the walls become instantly stained with a deep purple hue that just clings. The nose is perfumed and powerful, with violet top notes, followed by spice, black cherries, concentrated blackberries and cedar. The palate is a total explosion - vinous G forces hit every corner of the mouth, with intense layers of spice, blackberry and black pepper, overlaid with cedar and plum. The tannins are evident, but almost unperceivable, given the intensity of the fruit. The balance is perfect and the oral explosion continues well into the aftertaste. An extraordinary wine.
Cellar: 20 years (2025+)
The 2004 Shiraz Cambrian exhibits a distinctive terroir/earthy/fresh mushroom/truffle-like component intermixed with graphite, camphor, blueberry, blackberry, and cassis. A wine of great intensity, structure, muscle, and firm tannin, this impressive effort should be at its finest between 2009-2025+.
