2005 Karatta 12 Mile Vineyard Shiraz Cabernet
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewSourced from beautiful Robe (where, as that Telstra ad suggested, robes are not the local specialty) the glory of this wine is all about what an extra year of bottle age can do, rounding out the firmer bits softening out the middle, ultimately making for a quite rich if rather dry red that is rather lamb friendly.
Winemaker's NoteAppearance: Dense and vibrant deep red with purple hues.
Nose: Highly perfumed full of dark, black fruits - plum, blueberry and dark cherry and hints of spicy pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Palate: Across the palate, ripe blueberry and dark cherry fruit flavours stylishly combine with chocolate and olive flavours. Texturally silky, fine and tight tannins seamlessly coalesce with seasoned older oak, providing impressive structural definition.
