Dalwhinnie Shiraz 2012
Colour: Deep dark purple, shiny
Bouquet: Evocative perfume taking in fresh herbs, cherries, mocha and damp earth.
Palate: Very tight and sinewy with concentrated dark berry fruits, super fine grainy tannins and the most incredible presence in the mouth. The finish is also super long.
Winemaker’s comments: The 29th vintage of this Australian icon, and in my opinion this really is the holy grail of Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz. The vintage year cannot be underestimated, a 9/10 year, hence the quality of this lovely wine. It will need 2 – 3 years in bottle to really appreciate what’s going on. Enjoy with Victorian lamb.
