Lucky Country Shiraz 2008

An export order apparently fell through enabling Chalk & Cheese stores to stock this lovely glossy purple hued Barossan gem for $15.

Immediate aromas of American oak offering up cedar and vanilla notes, with chocolate and jammy, fruity, plumminess in the background.

Big gobfuls of fruit make way for a touch of spice and more cedary vanilla oak.. Fine tannin, smooth finish.  You know what you get with this.  

Drink now.

  1. G'Day Stu, Prof Pilsner from Beer Blokes. Sorry I missed your tweet re wine Tweeps for the marketing company. I don't know a lot about the event, only that it is in Melbourne. I'm happy to pass on your name to the PR folk as they are looking at social media projects for the future anyway.
