Tahbilk 2007 Shiraz - 88pts
Availability: Limited. BCLDB Stores
Date Tasted: February 20th, 2012
Tasting Notes: This 2007 vintage Shiraz, from one of Australia's oldest estate wineries, has already enjoyed 18 months in oak and a further 3+ years in the bottle to mellow and meld. The acid is crisp and the tannins are fine resulting in a wine that offers good balance between its black fruit and oak characters with a full but not gooey mouth feel. The developing bouquet greets you with pleasing green spice, oak, cherry cola, anise and chocolate aromas. The finish is moderate with tart red fruits flavours and some lingering cracked black pepper notes. Drink now-2014.
