About the wine

Tasting notes

The Wendouree Shiraz 2010 offers a stunningly complex nose of dark fruit, blackberry and a subtle hint of spice, accompanied by a touch of oak. On the palate, it is full-bodied and well-structured, with a firm tannin profile that is well-balanced by the wine's acidity. The flavor profile is dominated by dark fruit notes, including blackberry and plum, with a hint of spice and a long, lingering finish.

Expert review

Exceptionally elegant, focused and shapely,this finely balanced and long-living shiraz has a fragrant, spicy bouquet of briary cassis, blackberry and blueberry fruit backed by a smoky note of Sichuan pepper, fresh cedar/chocolate/vanilla oak and a hint of graphite. Its deep, almost pastille-like dark berry fruit delivers emphatic varietal intensity, knits tightly with fresh oak and a firmish, drying undercarriage and moves seamlessly down the palate towards a finish of great length and freshness. A wine for the ages

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
