Shiraz

Museum Wines  |  2004 Shiraz

Jeremy Oliver Wine Guide 2008, 96 points

A finely crafted and superbly structured Shiraz whose slightly closed and withdrawn bouquet gradually unfolds layers of brooding, briary fruit and tightly balanced oak.Long, evenly balanced and sumptuously fruited, its deliciously spicy and focused palate delivers mouthfilling small berry flavour and dusty French oak undertones framed by fine grained tannins. With a terrific structure and surprising elegance, it should cellar superbly over the medium to long term.
