Mount Avoca Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
Lacd with nuances of mint and cracked pepper, menthol and eucalypt, this smooth and supple shiraz of medium to full body marries a briary expression of dark berries and plums with restrained cedar/graphite oak. Scented with a characteristi violet-like note and supported by a fine, drying spine of chalky tanning, it's long and elegant with a hint of iodide at the finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
A gentle, stylish, Rhone-inspired shiraz of some finesse. Its dusty, spicy and floral bouquet of cassis, mulberries, dark plums and violets is laced with suggestions of cracked pepper and fresh, fine-grained, gamey oak. Supple and elegant, with a bright, medium-weight presence of cassis, raspberries and cherries supported by silky, fine-grained tannins, it finishes with meaty, savoury aspects and just a hint of currant.

Handy deep-purple hue in the glass; the nose offers up immediate spiced summer-berry fruit aromas, dry leaves and bark; nicely handled oak in the mix too. Flavours run through in a similarly bright red-berry spectrum; tannins sit soft and even. Juicy, young and attractive.

Good value and outside the fashionable block buster mould. Modern medium bodied with pretty black berry fruit.
