First these were super popular and then you couldn't give them away. The fact is, there are some excellent Australian Shiraz and many of the cellar just fine. If you liked them young, you will probably like them with some age. At age 16, this one is humming along and drinking great. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black raspberries.
This was a treat and a new one for me. Iced Tea in color. The nose has a lot of alcohol. When you get past that there is a lovely caramel. It is sweet but not cloying. Much smoother and better on the palate. Caramel and some chocolate. Warm not hot on the finish.
