Atze’s Corner Eddie’s Old Vine Shiraz 750ml (Barossa Valley, SA)
Pristine and youthfully deep, it’s virtually impenetrable with the ruby red colour showing the power and concentration which low yielding, seriously old vines give. A gloriously aromatic bouquet led by sweet spices and backed up by damson plum, dark chocolate and the most subtle of toasty oak.
The rich, enveloping palate is lush and smooth with bright fruit; dark cherries and Christmas cake made all the more complex by the layers of spices: cloves, cinnamon and anise. As anticipated the finish is uber-long with a savoury, umami note which leaves you wanting another sip.
