Australian Shiraz tasting 10 November 2002


Elmore's Ebenezer Old Vine Shiraz 1997 Roehr, Barossa Valley
Roger Harris Wines, UK

Vines more than 80 years old supply this mature, rather low-key wine with warm, comforting cough pastille flavours but there is too pronounced acidity for real comfort. 15

Two Hands Angel's Share 2001 McLaren Vale

Screwcap! Very fragrant and surprisingly supple fruit so ripe that it is almost more like old-vine Grenache. Immensely flattering. Could be much enjoyed immediately. A lovely wine that spreads itself to all corners of the palate. Velvet texture. Unbelievably good for 25,000 bottle production. Rolf Binder fecit. 18.5
