Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2009

A wine with plenty in the tank and one that seems to rise and grow in stature in front of your very eyes.

Earthen, chocolate oak, black fruit and perhaps a suggestion of some savoury notes pulling through by way of a touch of black olive skin.

Powdery tannin, perky acid, black fruited. There's a darkness lurking at the black palate, a touch of licorice. Gives the impression it's still quite a pup, bright - but yet hinting at that darkness. The savoury years ahead. A quite magnificent wine with excellent cellaring potential. 95
