Tim Smith Wines Shiraz 2009, Barossa Valley.

14.5%  4.5 STARS

Old-vine shiraz from the Barossa and Eden valleys is good drinking in winter, and this would be a nice wine to cuddle up with in front of the TV. Blackberry, dark cherry, blood plum, coal and vanilla oak aromas are seductive, as is a core of rich , ripe blackberry and spice flavours. It's nicely balanced with a backbone of juicy acid and fine-grained tannins, smooth texture and spice, berries and herbs on the finish. This wine will have lots of fans. FOOD MATCH: Braised Oxtail.
