Bridgewater Mill Shiraz 2009

I'm going through a cool climate phase with shiraz at the moment and it was about time the Adelaide Hills made an appearance.
No need to say too much here... I thoroughly enjoyed this wine and it is a fraction off being brilliant! Time will be it's friend too and I'm sure that it will tip over into brilliant status in years to come.
The nose was captivating. I was getting floraly notes, but also sweet smoke, and of all things, bacon! I was sure there was something wrong with my nose but my trusty drinking buddy confirmed my thoughts - and we loved it! It was one of those wines which you could whiff all night. But I didn't have time for that as my curiosity got the better of me.
Fruit was spot on. The colour was appealing and the palate weight was super. Spice and oak, with a deliciously fine finish. RRP $25 and a very handy investment at that. Enjoy!
