Tim Adams Shiraz 2009

The Shiraz quest continues. The Clonakilla was pretty close. Perhaps I will serve an eclectic range of Shirazes from different Australian regions. Oh, hold on, Australia is one big wine chemical factory producing vineous monotony…. anyways, the Tim Adams Shiraz. 14.6% abv. The wine spent 24 months on a mix of one and two year old American oak barrels. A lovely spicy nose with blackberries, red plums, vanilla, mocha and cherries. Cannot see any overpowering mint or eucalypt characters, and I am definitely on the lookout for them. A balanced palate, with fruits following the nose, and a touch of eucalypt and woody dryness on the finish. There it is! $20.79 from Dans, $22 from the cellar door… good value either way. I like it.
