2002 M. Chapoutier Mount Benson Shiraz
6 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewFrom a very cool vintage this is still embryonic really - a savoury, spicy Shiraz in a Syrah-esque mould of earthiness and pepper, everything backed by that wonderful dark plumminess of ripe fruit. Nice wine.
Winemaker's NoteAppearance: Intense red.
Nose: Dominant of black fruit aromas (blackcurrant, blueberries, cherry).
Palate: Very round, slightly woody structure. The tannins, discrete and round, let the fruit aromas show through.
