2009 Rolf Binder Halliwell Shiraz Grenache
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Mouth-filling dark red ripe fruits pinging down the palate and finishing with hints of licorice along for the happy ride. Terrific with duck or turkey sausage and lentils, and vegetarian moussaka.
$18.79 as part of a mixed case.
Sorry, sold out. Waiting for next vintage.
"What first strikes you with the bouquet of this wine is the abundance of glass filling berry fruit aromas. The subtle use of both old and new oak combined with soft tannins comes through on the palate. Strong full bodied characters last right through to the back of the palate and certainly linger, leaving your mouth wondering what was that truly sublime experience? Before you know it you're tasting more. This wine will drink well now, showing off its ripe fruit characters. It will cellar for up to 6 years and reward you with a fully integrated wine fruit showing the benefits of age."
"90 pts ... Blended of 75% Shiraz and 25% Grenache, the 2009 Halliwell Shiraz Grenache gives a deep garnet-purple color and notes of warm red currants, black cherries and kirsch with suggestions of black tea, licorice and dried roses. Fresh and fruity on the medium to full bodied palate, it has a medium level of silky tannins, lively acid and a long finish. Delicious now, it should keep through 2016+." --02/12

$20.9990+ WA; 93 JH Wonderful, rich red Barossa fruit with characteristic hints of licorice and black pepper. The Rolf Binders Hales Shiraz is a very satisfying, long mouthful of great flavors to pair with anything off the barbecue or dishes spiced with cinnamon, coriander, cumin or anise.
$22.9991 WA; 91 ST Earthy and bright and a touch meaty, this Grenache should please most palates with spicy berry flavors aplenty. Fabulous with our cilantro chicken legs and roasted turkey sandwiches - such an adaptable wine!
