Premium Wines | 2000 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend
Robert M. Parker, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate Issue 143, 91/100
Owner Don Oliver is considered to be one of the better growers of South Australia, with his grapes often being selected for part of the famed Penfold’s Grange blend. His winemaker, Corrina Rayment, has fashioned two fabulous offerings in 2000. The 2000 Corrina’s Blend (55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Shiraz and 5% Merlot aged in both French and American oak) is a sexy, opaque purple-colored effort with smoky, earthy, meaty aromas as well as copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit. As the wine sits in the glass, notions of sweet, melted licorice and camphor also emerge. Layered, lush and complex, this hedonistic red will drink well for 3-4 years.
