Pepper Tree Coquun Shiraz 2010
Impeccable doesn't describe half of it!
A single vineyard wine which is wickedly silky and smooth. Medium bodied, it is spectacular now and will only get better.
Earthy and meaty aromas with a slight hint of beef stock. Plenty of dark and red fruits in there too. A touch of smoke and sweet oak char. A fair old whiff that is.
Plenty of seductive soft flavours which flow from the nose perfectly. There is a gorgeous spice which lingers beautifully. Lovely oak which is balanced well too. Once you tip it in the flavours roll through the mouth like a landslide, covering every speck. The length is excellent and hovers for what seems an eternity.
A bloody good bottle of wine, and once again as I've found with the new release Pepper Tree range, very well made.
Would I buy it? Hell yeah!
