Briar Ridge Dairy Hill Shiraz 2010
Wonderfully structured with flavours that slide through your mouth with ease. Housed in new and one year old French Oak for fourteen months, these flavours have added beautifully to the flavour profile.
A good whiff of blackberry, plums, black olive, a sliver of clove and perhaps even tar.
Medium bodied, the fruit flavours are luscious and supple. The gentle spice ticks away with a moreish long finish.
The wines packs a little punch with great depth of flavour, yet leaves with a soft and delicate touch.
The winery suggests 10 years cellaring for this. I won't disagree.
I'd buy it. You should too.
