My favorite Shiraz wines come from Central Victoria, and this is a very good example. Tasted alongside the 1983 Domaine Thalabert (below), it was definitely the inferior wine but did not embarrass itself.
Deep ruby, darker than the Thalabert. On the first night, pretty Viognier scents tended to overwhelm the Syrah notes of black raspberries and currants. On the second night, the depth was much more apparent. More acid than the typical Australian Shiraz, and that is what I like about it. Ready to drink now and over the next five years.
