Printhie Mt Canobolas Collection Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The wines of Printhie re-define the word cool in cool climate and they just keep pushing the envelope in terms of quality. Winemaker Drew Tuckwell is fastidious when it comes to fruit selection and this Shiraz is a nod to the wines of the old world but imbued with its own unique characteristics. It’s no blockbuster that’s for sure and is certainly elegant by Australian standards. Expect a nose with vibrant berries and spice with a vannilin oak complexity, aromatics and softness to the long finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Medium-bodied and fine-boned in structure. There is a fineness and elegance to this wine that is almost the antithesis of Australian Shiraz. Perfumed red berries, spice, some charcuterie, soft integrated oak showing as hints of choc-vanilla and cedar. Lifted floral complexity. Lively acid provides backbone and fine tannins provide length.

Rob Geddes MW (2011 Vintage) says
Medium intense pretty pepper, floral with subtle oak, red berry and spice fruit, subtle tobacco oak spice. The ripe fruit is sweet and red with good density, roundness, great balance and length. A short note for a long flavoured wine.

Bright crimson-purple; a beguiling bouquet of black cherry, plum, spice and French oak is not a false dawn, for it is followed by a medium-bodied palate with outstanding mouthfeel and balance, all the flavours in a seamless bond with fine, ripe tannins.

Floral-fresh nose with spicy/nougat touch. Rich, juicy, cherry-like palate with pleasing acidity and some very subtle tannins.

Fine-grained black pepper spice and classy raspberry aromas a little elevated in acidity but raspberry juicy fruit with a long finish.
