Seppelt Mount Ida Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Vivid purple hue; restrained mocha, blueberry, thyme and toasty oak aromas emanate from the glass; there is a refreshing Provencal herb note on the palate, offset by red fruits, fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity
Australian Wine Companion 2012 2011
Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Beneath its rather herbal, meaty and stalky aromas lurks a black, red and blue array of small summer berries, plums and earthy, menthol nuances. Its rather overworked palate is bound by slightly bitter, green-edged tannins, lacking true freshness and focus. It finishes slightly raw and greenish, but that said, there's weight and intensity aplenty.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Hard and chunky, with an assertive smokiness that pervades its dark aromas of plums, blackberries and minerals and its rather heavy, raw and astringent palate. It appears to have been stripped of fruit, lacking length and movement down the palate.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Vivid purple hue; a very dark wine with tar, earth and spicy oak complementing an abundance of dark fruits with a hint of blueberry; quite tannic, but in balance for the abundant fruit; very long

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Dense, brooding, dark berry aromas and great concentration of varietal flavours with tightly wound tannins. Just needs more time to reach its best. 5+
WINESTATE Volume 34 (2011)
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Bigger again and fleshier; fermented in the Yarra Valley, and matured in the Barossa Valley; French oak adds a dimension to previous vintages of Mt Ida, which were not under the Seppelt label.
