2014 James Estate Hunter Valley Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Up where the eagles soar is where you can find James Estate wines in the glorious upper Hunter Valley. This wine perfectly captures all that is great about the region’s Shiraz from a classic vintage. It exhibits dark plum with lifted spice and mocha oak before a soft mouthfeel and fine tannin weight. This would definitely benefit some air and pair brilliantly with lamb or even game dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

Sourced from our Captain Block and DJ Blocks this Shiraz is a richly flavoured wine with a lovely harmony between the ripe fruit flavours and the savoury elements.

Appearance: Deep ruby red

Nose: Aromas of dark berries, plums and spice with subtle savoury oak

Palate: Medium to full bodied with generous fruit flavours and a supple mouth feel. The long finish is complimented by fine dusty tannins

Food pairing: Rich meat, BBQ

Cellaring: While drinking well on release this wine will continue to develop well. Drink by 2020
