Bimbadgen Signature Mistletoe Lane Vineyard Shiraz 2011


The fruit for this wine comes from forty year old vines in an established Orlando Wyndham vineyard on Mistletoe Lane in Pokolbin. Hand picked with 20% whole bunch fermentation.

Well balanced, aromas of raspberry, cloves, black olives, some earthy characters and a little touch of dark chocolate.

All flowed neatly onto a generous palate. Medium bodied, some prune type flavours amongst the soft fruits. Subtle spices clung to the finish. Well integrated oak sits in the background. Fine grainy tannins.

Winemaker Sarah Crowe has done a great job.

A little more bottle age will help this sing. Have with beef fillet.
