Pertaringa Over The Top Shiraz 2012

The biggest surprise with this wine was the choice of closure, it's not so often these days that you find an Aussie wine under cork.

That aside: choc-plum-hazelnut oak; a big, bold and rich wine - but not brutish. Red and black fruits abound on entry, we catch glimpse of a little acid balanced against spice by way of pepper and anis. Tannin is gorgeously fine-grained, backed up by a little toasty oak bitterness and a suggestion of citrus oil.

Depth and intensity of flavour, carries its weight well - I wish I could say the same. 93
