Mt. Billy Antiquity

Shiraz, 2002

Australia Red

Barossa 75cl

Those of you whom attended our Australian tasting in November of 2005... I think could have been 04 !! may have tried this . I liked it a lot, so stashed a couple away (of which this is my last)
Opened for Valentines 2009 with bleeding meats main course. This always drank well but is really singing now. It has a powerful, lifted almost Porty nose with a lot of sweet liquorice, dark chocolate (not your Bourville more semi-legal Cacao) and polished soft leather. The palate is sweet and voluptuos again with that almost Porty edge and the sweet red and blue fruit is just about held in check by the vestiges of oak, tannin and structure.Really, really superb
I wish I still had at least 2 more for future inspection but 'ce la vie !'

In fact this was so good we hunted down a couple more cases down so dig in ...
