The Colonial Estate 'Explorateur'
Old Vine Shiraz, 2006
Barossa Valley 75cl
Hand picked, hand sorted old vine Shiraz. Aged 12 months in oak, bottled unfiltered. Ripe berry fruit on the nose, a touch of raisin too. It's a juicy style with red and black fruits, plum and black cherry. Charry oak and slighly odd acidity. The acid tastes like it's been added late in the day and therefore is not integrated.
