Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2010


Still a young wine and well off its peak drinking but definitely a wine worth putting away.

Single vineyard fruit with all the bells and whistles applied, there is so much interest in the bottle. Coffee, black fruits and a hint of dried fig. After spending some time in the decanter to resuscitate itself, new levels of flavour were unleashed in the form of rum and raisin, savoury characters, earthiness and faint clove. Cop that!

Oak has been well worked and integrated nicely. The fruit is very soft and delicate and a most impressive length keeps you yearning for more.

With all this happening now, I can only imagine how it will all fuse together in a few years let alone the decades of potential it has ahead.
