Krondorf Schulz & Bowen Shiraz 2012

This is one of those big, bad ass Barossa Shiraz wines that some people want to steer clear of. It's a weapon.

I had it in the decanter for two hours and it didn't budge. Not one bit. The stated 14.5% I reckon is on the lower end of the spectrum with the 1.5% allowance.

Black fruit, tar, spice, cocoa and star anise aromas. That I did like. The big blockbuster flavours delivered can smack a mild palate around. Tight acid sits and lingers more than the fruit.

I wouldn't be able to finish a glass. Even after two days open I couldn't be persuaded.

No thanks.
