Nuriootpa High School 'Barossa Class'
Australia, Barossa Valley 75cl
This is as it sounds a wine from a school. The school's wines have been highly rated by Robert Parker. Another wine of academic interest, unavailable in the UK. From premium grapes in the Barossa, grown and made by students and staff from the Agriculture faculty. High toned fruit, slightly varishy, with spice, plum and American oak. It tastes slightly over-acidified it has a marked citrus quality. This however is something i am particularly sensitive too, so many others may not notice this. It's a big wine with powerful red and black fruits. A touch oif tar and pepper, chocolate too. This is typical heart of the Barossa big red wine. Not especially subtle, it is a big charry red of some quality. I just wish the acidity was not so obvious.
