Taylors ‘St Andrews’ Clare Valley Shiraz 2015

Syrah from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 05-Jul-2018
Saturated, purple-hued black-red colour. The nose is very bold, full and voluminous with well concentrated and dense aromas of very ripe blackberry fruit with liquorice, black plums and boysenberries, along with fragrant, spicy oak. This unfolds an amalgam of black pepper, Asian spices and earthy complexities. Full-bodied, the palate has rich, plump, bold and up-front flavours of sweetly ripe blackberries and black plums, along with boysenberries and liquorice, unveiling Asian spices and sweet oak. The palate has a succulent and opulent core supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure. The flavours blossom on the finish, growing in spiciness, decadence and opulence. This is a bold, up-front, succulently sweet and opulent Shiraz with ripe blackberry, plum and boysenberry fruit, and sweet oak on a finely structured palate, Match with roasted and grilled game meat over the next 7-10+ years. Fruit from the best blocks of the Taylors estate, fermented to 14.26% alc., the wine aged 20 months in 70% new American oak. 19.0/20 Jul 2018 RRP $69.99
