Scorpo 'Old Vines' Shiraz 2010
A limpid deep garnet colour with a purple hue edge greets the eye. Powerful aromas hint at exotic spices, dark juicy fruits, and undergrowth, all adding to its richness and savory, chewy palate. It is an elegant and harmonious example of complex cool-climate shiraz.
The Wine Front – In excellent form, as is the entire Scorpo range. White pepper melts into black cherry-plum and woodsmoke. Offers a good burst of ripe fruit but it's characterised by its pepperiness. Spicy tannin spins through the finish. I can't recall a better Scorpo shiraz.
