Reserve  |  2004 HJ Reserve Shiraz

TRENT BEST, Grandview Queensland, March 2008

2004 Oliver’s Taranga HJ Reserve Shiraz - From a benchmark vintage, this wine is highly impressive from start to finish. It spends two and a half years in new French oak, which adds a certain degree of elegance when compared to some of its peers using American oak. An extremely plush and complex wine with rich, concentrated flavours. Quite alluring with layer upon layer unfolding with every mouthful. A wine of great pedigree with former awards including Winestate Wine of the Year and current outstanding reviews by big names such as Robert Parker (95 points) and Jeremy Oliver (96+). Drink now to 15+ years
