Golden Grove Vintage Grand Reserve Shiraz 2012
Made from 50 year old vines, this is smart. Only medium weight, the best of it is yet to come.
Black fruits, some chocolate and varietal spice, a dab of white pepper and a hint of clove hold the fort. Cedary oak floats around effortlessly adding another dimension. There is some fruit sweetness but that only builds to a well layered palate.
I'd buy one for sure but I wouldn't touch it for another couple of years. Cellar for up to ten years.
