2006 ‘Alexander Munro’ Shiraz

“Here, another one I’ve been meaning to write up, having tasted it once in February and again in July with consistent points, but slightly different notes. This year sees a bit of experimentation going on with the inclusion of 20% whole bunch and 50% indigenous yeast. I’ve included both notes – just because.Creamy vanilla oak, blackberry, bacon, fragrant whole bunch, peppermint/pine needles. Medium to full bodied with meaty bacon, blackberry/boysenberry, earth and French vanilla. Quite rich with some stalky influence. It has dry tannins and plenty of length. Needed a couple of days to come up. Should be very good. aniseed/liquorice, light earth – fragrant – some smoke and stalk. Medium full with superb fine tannins and a bit of sappy grip. Predominantly red fruit flavours. Balanced and long. Really good. Much less of the stalk/pine/mint of the previous bottle. Big finish – closing dry with some stalk. Third day looking very fresh and firm with more raspberry and fresh berry flavour”. Rated : 94+ Points
