The Osicka Selection wines are produced from fruit purchased from local growers. This wine was matured in French oak (20% new) for a period of 14 months and includes a 3% Shiraz component.
Midnight black core with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Fetching aromas of blackcurrant infused with black olive intermix with cedary tobacco, earth and subtle eucalypt notes. Full bodied, the palate is awash with rich blackcurrant, liquorice and black cherry fruits which show terrific concentration and power. Mint, earthy vanillin cedar, subtle tobacco and spicy black olive characters lie underneath. Firm medium grained tannins provide excellent structure. Concludes with a long muscular and richly fruited finish.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews....
From outside of the home site, a stretch to other pals who grow grapes and allow the Osicka brand to flourish outside of the estate. Oh, 3% shiraz here and 20% new oak.
Thick set, yes, slurpy too, a wash of cassis and pleasingly earthy, garrigue-laced characters in scent and flavours. Big concentration, inky for sure, a lush wash of richness, inky feel and general massiveness but with freshness and coolness on side. Beautifully balanced in a big frame, a lot of the green herbal stuff chiming in and yet a sense that plum, cassis and kirsch all work together superbly. Bold, done so well. Drink 2022 - 2030.
