2009 Valley Floor Barossa Shiraz
COLOUR: Medium to deep crimson with purple hue.
NOSE: Ripe Satsuma plums and mulberry fruits fill the nostrils with lovely creamy vanilla, chocolate and hints of smoke, violets and citrus.
PALATE: Bright, juicy, plum and mulberry fruits flow onto the palate which is medium bodied. The sweet fruit is well balanced with silky tannins, good acidity, briary and sweet spice. A nice long finish tapers from sweet fruit through spice and citrus to end with a little dark chocolate.
FOOD MATCHING: A perfect match - richly flavoured meats, game or mature cheddars.
