Murray Street Vineyard Black Label Shiraz 2010

The fruit for this wine is picked from a number of sites across the Barossa Valley to create a wine that reflects the different composites found across this much loved region - a good honest 'Barossa' Shiraz.

Blackcurrant and plum to the fore with a hint of the oak the wine spends 18 months in, a combination of old and new, French and American.  Peppery and smooth in the mouth, the pepper presenting itself straight away, building and building in the mouth.

Give this wine a little time, it improves if you do so.  The pepper settles a little, it's still present but takes a back seat to allow some of the fruit and oak to further shine.  90+ - Good
