The Wine Front – Bulls-eye. Fruit, oak, tannin and licks of savoury smoky complexity. Will suit all comers. Blackberries, graphite and cloves. Velvety texture. Very fairly priced. Ripper drinking.
World Wine – If shirazes tasted as good as this then I’d drink a lot more shiraz, said my wife after this trumped a bracket of several more expensive shirazes in a recent tasting. Made by Mornington peninsula winemaker Geraldine McFaul from fruit grown in the cool Pyrenees region of Victoria, it is a wine of remarkable quality for the price; terrific fruit, quality oak and great structure with just a hint of minerally tannins. Beautifully balanced and structured. I could drink quite a lot of this. Winsor Dobbin
About This Wine
This wine originated in the Pyrenees, a region that boasts warm, sunny days and cool nights, ideal conditions for encouraging the generous flavours in shiraz. It has intense aromas of ripe plums and liquorice and a rich, spicy palate balanced by even, firm tannins. The finish is long and savoury - a shiraz with structure!
Mornington Peninsula Wines
South of Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula grape growing region has a cool, maritime climate that is most known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production. Other varieties that have seen some success here include Pinot Gris and Tempranillo.
However, it does seem that Pinot Noir is their focus judging from the fact that The Mornington Peninsula International Pinot Noir Celebration is held once every two years. The event displays the region’s capabilities in making some of Australia’s finest Pinot Noir in front of local and international audiences.
