Zusammen Shiraz 2003

All I can say is – wow!

I’ve wanted to blog about this one for a while, but finally just got around to it. I’ve had this one pretty regularly now as a Saturday afternoon diversion at the National Wine Centre café for a couple of months.

The age of the vines comes out as a rich, soil-based, almost truffle-like flavour. This is a Barossa Shiraz of utmost boldness and smoothness. Although the age comes out as dominant, there’s a rich, blackberry, tobacco and coffee flavour just lingering underneath. Want a brilliant, classic, bold Australian Shiraz? This is the one to accompany that expensive piece of organic and hand-massaged meat you’ve been saving for just the right Sunday night.

Try as I might, I just can’t find a website. Shame. I can’t even find a photo.

    • G’day Cliff – I’m glad you agree. No, still haven’t found a link, but let us know how you get on with the email. I’d be keen to order some myself considering it’s getting late in the day for a 2004 this good.
