Ah Wendouree Shiraz. The wine that people buy when they don’t realise the Cabernet wines from Wendouree are usually the best ones. That’s probably a good thing. That being said, this year… The Shiraz is a very very good wine. I’m not crazy about the fly spray/menthol character on the nose, but putting that to one side, and moving on to the palate, the wine is an absolute blinder. It sits deep in the mouth then charges through, with perfect acidity, ripe and dense fruit, nutty toothsome tannin, and pure blackcurrant, plum and raspberry fruit surging on the long finish, like a freak wave. I’m not red hot on some of the smells, but the taste and structure of it is undeniably good. It’s 96 points, no worries, on the palate, and perhaps 94 to smell. Let’s do a deal. Rating: 95 Points; Tasted: August 2016; Alcohol: 13.7%; Closure: Screwcap: Drink: 2020-2040+; Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

100% shiraz from Central Vineyard bushvines planted in 1893, and the Eastern Vineyard planted in 1919. Bright crimson hue; calmly takes hold of the senses from the first whiff, and doesn't let go; the purity of the varietal expression blots out any fanciful taste descriptors as you come back again and to the black fruits (cherry, plum and berry), highlighted by their freshness and the consequent life of the wine in the mouth.
