Water Wheel 5 Rounds Baringhup Shiraz 2012
From Baringhup, which falls in the Bendigo region and some 150 kms north west of Melbourne, the 5 Rounds is a tribute to what Water Wheel has dealt with over five vintages. I refer to drought, frost and fire, flood, the dog died and then the resurrection all within five years. Admirable persistence.
A cracking wine which is rich and generous. Big and bold fruits are joined by a eucalypt and mint touch.
Finishing super fine with soft supple tannins, you'd be hard pressed finding value this good anywhere.
Distributed by Angove Wines, get your dukes on it! An excellent wine.
