Shiraz – Museum Release

Museum Wines  |  2006 Shiraz - Museum Release

Jay Miller, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Issue 181, 93 Points

The opaque purple-colored 2006 Shiraz spent two years in French and American oak, 25% new. It reveals aromas of smoke, pencil lead, pepper, game, blueberry, and blackberry. This is followed by a full-bodied, layered, glossy Shiraz with tons of spicy blue and black fruits, excellent balance, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years. The Oliver family is the sixth generation of grape growers on the same property. They retain a small portion of the best fruit to bottle under their own label. The wine is made by a family member, the talented Corrina Rayment, who also produces wine under her own label
