2010 Charles Cimicky Trumps Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Really juicy dark red fruits and licorice slap you in the face to say see how luscious, drink more. Thick and deep but not too heavy, enjoy with soy marinated flank steak grilled on the barbeque, lamb with rosemary, or stew.
$20.69 as part of a mixed case.
"100% Barossa Valley Shiraz from vineyards that average 63 years in age. Barrel fermented and aged in new AP John barrels (85% American) for 17 months. Apart from minor drip irrigation in January and February, the vines are dry grown, cover-cropped and organically fertilized. 14.5% alc."
"92 pts ... As honest as they come for Barossa shiraz, and handsomely priced; plum and blackberry fruit, mocha oak and soft tannins result in a full-flavoured and very well-balanced palate with no hint of alcohol heat. Excellent value."
