2009 Harcourt Valley Vineyards Barbara's Shiraz
Totally opaque, black dark crimson red colour with deep, dark red purple hue. Excellent lifted nose with aromas of ripe blackberry, dark plum, liquorice and toasty oak leaping from the glass, followed by some confectionary end notes. Full bodied, the palate delivers a ripe, rich flavour profile of liquorice, blackberry and confectionary followed by some spicy, toasted vanillin oak. Fine grained tannins. Excellent concentration with medium to long aftertaste of liquorice, toast, confectionary and spice.
Drink over the next 2-3 years (2011-2014)
