Firm in texture, lithe and expressive, offering green peppercorn and spice notes to the blackberry fruit, lingering against lively acidity on the juicy finish. Drink now through 2018. 60 cases imported.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Michael Shiraz is a little closed on the nose to begin, with savory scents of raw meat and yeast extract over a core of black plums, crushed blackberries and mulberries plus a touch of pepper. Tightly knit and well-structured in the mouth, it has a firm level of rounded tannins, lively acid and a long, layered finish. Drink it from 2014 to 2024+.
Convincing crimson-purple colour sends an early signal of a complete wine with a virtually limitless future thanks to admirable control of alcohol, starting in the vineyard and finishing in the winery. This is in turn expressed by red cherry (of itself unusual in Coonawarra), black cherry and spiced plum. The extensive new oak ageing means the wine needs a minimum of 7 years from vintage to reach a long plateau thereafter.
