Port Phillip 'Rimage' Tete de Cuvée

Syrah, 2005

Australia Red

Mornington Peninsula 75cl

Rimage is apparently a term used to signify a superior selection of a wine for a particular year. This wine is made from the best parcel of Shiraz/Syrah of the vintage-the tete de cuvée. It's from the cool climate Mornington Peninsula. Has had some great domestic press.Spicy on the nose with ripe berry fruit and pepper. Cool climate hints of green pepper too but nothing unripe. Gamey and meaty with oak too. Medium bodied with juicy ripe fruit. Lovely ripe berry fruits. Good juicy acidity and spice with an underlay of creamy toasty oak. It's pretty complex and long, but it's sheer vitality is what really appeals. Will be interesting to see how it ages. Sadly my only bottle and only produced in very small quantities.
