An Oaky beast this one, needed plenty of air to find its balance. Big, ripe but savoury with dense black fruits and tannin that rolls through. It’s best years are ahead of it.

Big improvement over 2013. Maybe old skool with plenty of oak but when I'm in the mood it hits the spot. Big, ripe dark fruits super fine tannin that builds, long finish.

Honestly, I remember liking this bit I don't remember any specifics. Need to try again

Just a hot tip, Father’s Day is 5 weeks tomorrow 😜 And if your Dad is anything like mine, then he loves his wine. Which makes present shopping very easy 🙌

The lovely team at Dialogue PR recently sent me this lovely #freegift (thank you!) of the Grant Burge ‘Filsell’ 2018 Old Vine Shiraz from SA’s Barossa Valley. And I must admit, it would make a great prezzie for those red wine loving Dads. It retails for approximately $44.

It’s drinking great now however it will age too. From what I’ve read, they reckon it could go up to 20 years from release 😱 It picked up 94 points from Halliday. The vines in the Filsell Vineyard are 100 years Old having been planted in 1920!

In the glass it’s a gorgeous deep red purple colour. Tantalising aromas of juicy blackberries, plums, cherries and a sprinkling of spice rise up from the glass. While in the mouth it’s rather voluptuous, with bold flavours of berries, dark chocolate and coffee. It has nice meaty tannins and a rather savoury character. A serious red wine.

This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Huge, deep dark under tones. Smooth and balanced evolving flavors from dark cherry to deep dark plum

The best from Barroso valley. Hand carried back home. Deep dark drippings of cedar dipped dried dark fruit. Tremendous structure that lingers for minutes ultimately yielding to a thirst for more!
