Meerea Park Hell Hole Shiraz 2011

A wine to savour.

The vines were planted in the 1960's and the fruit was hand harvested. Fermentation took place in open vats and 40% new French oak was used for 22 months.

Some beef jus, red fruits, five spice, and olives. Sleek, the wine softened furthermore over three days. I really liked the fruit on offer. A very moreish length which was fine and supple.

The two words which just kept singing out to me were refined and persistent.

Although approachable now, further time in the bottle will see it mesh together furthermore. Stick it on the shopping list.
