Premium Wines | 2001 Shiraz
Nicks Wine Merchants, 2003
An outstanding wine from Don and Margie Oliver. The couple have been growing grapes of extraordinary quality which have been sourced for Penfolds Grange in the past. The 2001 wine was made by Corrina Rayment, 6th Generation Oliver family member, who continues to make formidable wine. Made from a blend of 95% Shiraz and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon the wine was matured in a combination of 1/3 new American & French oak, 2/3 various age American & French oak for 18 months. Opaque black crimson colour. Superb nose of plum, spice, black pepper and vanilla. The palate explodes with layers of flavour. Mouthfilling plum, spice, blackberry and black pepper flavours are layered over dark chocolate and vanillin oak. Very fine tannins, perfectly balanced, with very long plum, blac kpepper & blackberry aftertaste. Cellar 5 – 8 years (2008-2011)
