Coldstream Hills Reserve Shiraz 2012
Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries.
The Coldstream Hills Reserve Shiraz is made from a selection of low yielding hillside vineyards located in the Lower Yarra Valley. Shiraz at Coldstream Hills is made using a number of techniques including fermentation in small open and static fermentation vessels. The wine is matured in French oak barrels for approximately sixteen months, prior to blending and bottling. It is then bottle matured for twelve months prior to release.
Silky and concentrated, the wine displays all the hallmarks of cool climate Shiraz and will reward careful cellaring for at least ten years.
Seductive from the first sip. Slippery smooth. Shot with herbs and spice. Cherry-plum flavour offset by notes of game, smoky oak and earth. Has a boysenberried freshness. A clear cracked pepper note. Elegant but with more than enough power, texture, interest. Rating: 94 Points; Drink by: 2027; Price: $45.00; Date Tasted: Jan 2015; Alcohol: 13%; Campbell Mattinson - James Halliday Wine Companion
