Andrew Garrett Bold Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2002 Vintage) says
A consistent label for Beringer Blass but less bold than in some years. Delicious drinking nevertheless: succulent, silky texture, ripe red berry flavours.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2001 Vintage) says
The Andrew Garrett wine machine must have a 'gutsy' button - and the winemakers must press it when they make this every year. Because it is bold -very bold. Lovers of heroic reds will appreciate the tarry, oaky, alcoholic flavours and tastes. Not terribly subtle, but - well, bold.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (1998 Vintage) says
There's no use pretending that you didn't know what you were buying: this brute of a wine is bold by name and certainly bold by nature—'Morris Pressings n steroids,' said Max in a quiet moment. Both of us felt that there are occasions when we would love to drink this hearty red: especially with a huge, juicy T-bone steak, fried onions and perfect chips. The fruit comes from the excellent 1998 harvest in Padthaway and McLaren Vale and the wine spent up to 15 months in American and French hogsheads, some of which were new. The Bold Shiraz has dark plum, aniseed and cedary oak flavours with some earthy, savoury characters, a silky smooth texture and chewy tannins on the finish.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Excellent purple-red; bright and fresh cherry and earth varietal fruit on both bouquet and palate continue the style established by this wine in previous vintages. Oak plays only a minor role.

James Halliday (1996 Vintage) says
Strong red-purple; masses of dark cherry fruit with some more briary undertones, and subde oak on the bouquet. The palate shows rather more vanillin American oak than does the bouquet, but works well, for there is plenty of rich, sweet fruit to justify that oak.
