Mon Père Tasmania Shiraz 2010

Comparing 2 cool climate Syrahs - this is the 2nd one from Tasmania. Black pepper with a touch of asparagus (SO2) which blew off. After a few hours delightful florals of gardenia and pansy. Intriguing to say the least. On the medium plus palate fruit and spice driven - more rich than expected from a Tasmanian Syrah. Really delicious with ripe fleshy plum melded with the spicy pepper. Finishing with medium minus tannins. A classy cool climate Syrah a few points above the Salo from NZ. This Mon Pere won the 50th Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy at Royal Melbourne and hard to get from this boutique producer. I could only get 2 bottles and this was the last one. Sold out in a day after winning the Trophy. Total production of 250 cases. Wish I had a few more left. Made by Nick Glaetzer whose family built their reputation in the Barossa like Amon Ra. — a month ago

Could not agree more with your comment Bob “how you like to enjoy your wine.” For me, I prefer wines in their youth. Still on their upswing. More fruit and tannin. Don’t get me wrong tho, some wines with cellar age can be wonderful.


Great comments!!


Amon-Ra Barossa Valley Unfiltered Shiraz 2005

Balanced. Fruit aromas. High alcohol content doesn’t show through as much as standard Australian reds. Lingering jammy flavor. Best Australian wine I’ve had. — 6 days ago
