Kilikanoon Oracle Shiraz (Clare Valley, SA)
Oracle Shiraz – Sydney International Wine Competition 2012
Warren Gibson – Lifted and spicy. Very focused and pure with nice blackberry notes. Quite a sweet palate with a suggestion of residual sugar. Lovely spice and richness with the venison. Perhaps the sweetness a little amplified.
Simon Tam – The Shiraz was very fragrant, spicy. A little bit of bottle age. That bottle age character linked up very nicely with the darker flavour colours of the dish. Quite savoury, fruity. Good balance. One of the more harmonious pairings of this flight.
