Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2004

Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2004

This one is an individual vineyard wine from Meerea Park, in particular the Ivanhoe vineyard in Pokolbin. Terroir rules. Classy blackberry and sweet earth, char grilled sausages, a touch of herbs and matchstick, and toasty vanilla. The palate balances sweet black cherries and spice with quite a bit of oak, creamy and nutty oak, but it is not a concern because the fruit carries it well on its broad shoulders. Very approachable now, but should also cellar well in the medium term. This is a lovely wine.
