Delicious
The mataro gives it the flesh I guess
Very minerally, nearly tingling
Long
I am about to run out of Wendouree bottles😭😭😭

2012 Wendouree Shiraz Mataro looking sharp, great balance, silky texture and an edge of funk! Looks like birth year FilthyGoodVino for G is in fine form! Thanks Tony & Lita!

Wow. Wish I had more. Beautiful elegance, earth, some spice and elegant dark fruit.

Not overly "Wendouree" which is a good thing IMO. Some earthy spicy notes with mineral. Medium weight. Has the guts to cellar for a while yet even at 15 years if you like the style. Tasted again on 27 February. Even better than before. Twiggy earthy notes again. Great depth of flavour. A little tar from the Mataro. Excellent wine.
