Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2006

This vintage was selected to be re-released after ten years due to its quality and ability to age furthermore. Sixty dozen were held back.

Take a whiff and old cedar and savoury herbs move straight into the fray. Lots of deep purple fruit brightened by youthful red fruits. A dash of Christmas cake, dark chocolate and soothing spice add interest. Soft, long, generous. Acidity has softened as you'd expect. Fine tannins walk proudly with their chest puffed out.

Still plenty of life left here. Will hold for another decade and then some.

Very good+
