Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Meerea Park’s flagship shiraz encapsulates all the power of 2010, embracing the juicy fruit intensity that characterises the vintage, yet doing so with great precision. This is wine of focused, ripe black plum and blackberry fruits over a field of violets and layers of white pepper, hovering above a finely textured plane of soft tannins. A healthy proportion of stalks in the ferment infuses nuances of exotics, lingering with great persistence.

An air of violets and white pepper hovers over focused, ripe black plum and blackberry fruits, on a supportive bed of finely textured, soft tannins. There are nuances of exotics, thanks to a healthy inclusion of stalks in the ferment.

Alexander the Great is heir to the throne of Hunter shiraz, with no fear of the grave(yard). A wine of beautifully fine, chalky tannins, immaculately honed texture, refreshingly low alcohol and vibrant acid profile, it lingers with blueberries, olives, sarsaparilla, nutmeg, pitch and graphite. Long live the king!

Crimson; a fragrant damson plum and black cherry bouquet, then a silky medium-bodied palate, the tannins fine, the finish long, the balance perfect. What a vintage '09 was for Hunter Valley shiraz.

Crimson-purple hue; a particularly distinguished single vineyard wine, featuring the Hunter Valley at its very best; dark plum, cherry and blackberry fruit is framed by supple tannins and perfectly balanced oak.

Garth and Rhys Eather are big men making big wines. Just take a look at this wine, will you € Explosive red. Crushed berry and cherries, pepper, sap, dusty vanilla oak and a touch of licorice. Medium-bodied but tannic, dry and punchy - and balanced. Big finish. Long-term. A big-hitter in grand style. Excellent.

Using their ripest fruit this wine is similar in style to the greatest Hunter shiraz. Classic example of the regional style.

Good crimson hue; distinguished Hunter style, certain to age gracefully, the black fruits supported by perfect tannins.

The bar is being pushed ever higher at Meerea Park. 2006 RELEASE There's a rich core of sweet fruit here, shot as it is by trademark notes of Hunter earthiness. It tastes of plums, malt, iodine, minerals and red earth, and there seems little doubt that it will mature majestically, DRINK 2012-2020.

Strong colour; complex regional leather, earth and spice; firm blackberry fruit entry; attractive soft tannins and oak on the finish.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
A well-inserted, quality cork has done its job well, carrying the wine through to the start of its plateau of maturity, with earthy Hunter flavours running through the black fruits, the tannins present but fine; has a particularly long finish.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Now shows all the classic Hunter aromas and flavours of mature shiraz, with leather and warm earth along with black fruits; the tannins are fine, but sufficient to sustain it for another decade or two, and underpin its great length.
