2019 Bin No. 0 Shiraz

 

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Dark red with a mauve hue.
Bouquet: Closed and broody then opens with layers of grilled meats, baked earth, Szechuan pepper, potpourri, black and blue berries with some nutty oak in the background.
Palate: Pure and intense fruit drives the palate with the plush black/ blue spectrum drawn in with a long, poised tannin structure and aftertaste.
Pairing: Try it with Beef Wellington
Cellaring: Will reward both short term to long term cellaring (20 years+).
Vintage: A warm, dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and some February rain gave the vines a well-deserved drink and freshened them up before the grapes were harvested.

REVIEWS

The Real ReviewHuon Hooke, Jan 2022   Deep red/purple colour, with aromas of mixed spices with pepper and clove uppermost, dark chocolate too, some sweet eucalypt-forest touches and deeply-buried dark plum and blackberry. Brown spices galore. It’s rich and concentrated in the mouth, not a blockbuster but certainly very full-bodied, yet balanced and supple in its mouth-feel. Oak makes a subtle contribution. A long finish and very age worthy.  Drink now to 2044.

Rating:  96 points

2021 Global Fine Wine ChallengeFull-flavoured expression in a medium-bodied and beautifully elegant wine with prominent yet well judged toasty oak driving the masses of dark fruit with hints of black olive, white pepper and bay leaf.  Excellent Length.  One of Australia’s favourites.

Ageing: 18 years   Average Rating:  93 points

2022 Halliday Wine Companion, Jeni Port – Vines date back to as far as 1868, the youngest 1992.  Right there you have an inkling of what is to come: a stunning concentration of fruit.  Impressive, but the supply, savoury tannins are up to the task of meeting that deep intensity of black fruits, woody spice and violets.  What a team for the future.  Of course, this into to forget the vanillan warm-oak component.  A wine of history that still stands firm today.  Drink to 2040.  Rating: GOLD 96 points
