A museum release from the winery - I bought this at a Shaw and Smith tasting in Brisbane a few years ago. An asparagus note initially which blew off. Asian spices, raspberry, earthy mineral notes on nose, carrying through to the medium to full bodied palate. A nice balance between cool climate and warm climate characteristics. Finishes with a little astringency.

A lovely savoury plummy nose with sappy rich notes. Mature cool climate Adelaide Hills Shiraz but this from a warmer year making it a more traditional SA Shiraz. I could have said some whole bunch fermentation but apparently none. From the Shaw and Smith maturation programme and purchased a year or 2 ago. Finishes with an astringent note.

Still hanging in there, fun to revisit the top vintages.

This wasn't where I was told it would be. Spinning a yarn of a very hot vintage, super pruney.
