20121117-194356.jpgThis evening we unscrewed a bottle of Shiraz from Hunter producer Bimbadgen Estate.  This Estate bottle is a blend from Bimbadgen’s Pokolbin property and from their McLaren Vale vines. 

Although not labelled as a Shiraz Viognier, the label mentions a small amount of Viognier has been included in the blend.

With maturation in French and American oak, there’s really a little something for everyone in this drop. 

This bottle, we’ve had down for a number of years; the wine exhibits a dark ruby colour and is complemented by a delicate carefully perfumed scent of berries and chocolate.

By this stage, we have a medium to full body and the main taste is consumed by a slightly peppery combination of liquorish and currants.  If you have a bottle, you could do worse than to open it now. Due to the screw cap enclosure, I can see this drinking for the next 5 years.
