2010 Saltram Mamre Brook Shiraz

mamrebrookWhy did I open this bottle?! It would have matured nicely for many more years and probably become even better than we found it at dinner with friends the other night.

From the moment it poured from the bottle we saw the rich dark colour and we new it was going to be better than very good. The aroma of black cherries and oak were followed by a full bodied wine, with a rich texture and strong earthy feel that is reminiscent of a good Durif.

Its nice balance of fine tannins and very appealing palate ensured that even those who are not keen on overly powerful full bodied reds (such as a Durif), were able to enjoy this memorable wine.

I have one bottle of this remaining and will see how it cellars for a few more years.

  1. I agree this is an excellent strong red wine but OK to have with any type of meal or just to appreciate on its own.
