Event description

Description

Super Shiraz Me, will be a special evening featuring eight 2005 Shiraz from South Australia wine regions, each from an outstanding year. Harvest 2005 had a good lead-in to the season with good winter and spring rains establishing favourable soil moisture levels in most locations. The ripening and harvest period was characterized by generally cool-to-mild conditions with the majority of regions benefiting from regular, refreshing rain. The cooler conditions provided a steady ripening environment in which superior colour, flavour, acid and varietal definition are developing in the grapes. So now we get to taste those wines that were made 12 years ago, and stored in our cellar.

Here are the wines;

BRL Hardy Chateau Reynella Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Fox Gordon “Eight Uncles” Shiraz, Barossa Valley

Jim Barry “The Lodge Hill Shiraz”, Clare Valley

Torbreck “Woodcutter’s” Shiraz, Barossa Valley

d’Arenberg “The Dead Arm” Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Heartland Wine “Director’s Cut” Shiraz, Langhorne Creek

Mitolo “Jester” Shiraz, McLaren Vale

Taylor’s Wakefield Shiraz, Clare Valley

The evening will start at 6:30 with a white reception wine, then the tasting starts at 7:00 p.m. Food will be served when we first start and then again before the second four wines.
