2008 Mount Horrocks Shiraz

2008 Mount Horrocks Shiraz

Rich violet-red. Alluring deep dark fruit scents, lifted spice and fragrant perfume notes. A definitive example of modern Australian shiraz where ripeness and alcohol, tannin and oak are thankfully kept in check.

Blackberry, blueberry and sour cherry fruits mingle with clove-like spice and brambly, tobacco-leaf, earthy notes on a mid-weight palate that is incredibly supple, gentle and long. It’s all class and style, vibrant and filled with vitality, appealing right now but showing all the hallmarks of age-worthiness – eight to ten years or more. Charry meats would provide a perfect foil.
