2010 Wicks Estate Shiraz. Adelaide Hills. 14.5%

IMG_1063

Straight out of the bottle and immediately its aroma and flavour profile point to Adelaide Hills Shiraz.

This is cool climate, spicy Shiraz. More spice than fruit.

Cloves, cinnamon & sneezy pepper with clean red fruits coming through at the end.

It was very youthful and took awhile to wake this from its slumber.

To me, it suggests a few more years will help unfurl its potential.

A solid effort. Fan’s of big, ripe, Barossa Shiraz need not apply

Found this down at Dan Murphy’s for about $17

Tasted 30th November 2012

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
