Is there a wine you buy every vintage? In preparation for the @Serratwines releases I just couldn’t resist trying one of the 17s to get me more excited! 🍷 This wine is from the Shiraz block planted in 2003, with Viognier from the original 2001 plantings. There are two Shiraz clones in the block; Best’s Old Block sourced from the original 1868 plantings at Best’s Great Western and clone 1654, a Barossa selection. The Viognier is from cuttings at Yarra Yering, cut in 2000, that Dr Carrodus had personally taken them from Chateau Grillet in Condrieu in the 60’s. Highly illegal at the time…. 🍷 The nose? Highly fragrant. Red and blue fruits, violets, black pepper and spice... bloody good and very complex. The palate? Soft, super fine and silky tannins. Trademark blue and red fruits, gorgeous peppery notes. So beautifully structured, finishes long, oh so long. I can’t wait for my 17s to be 5+ years old and for the new release! Awesome wines and you’ll struggle to find better for the price anywhere! 🍷 ​ #sommlife #winephotography #corkdork #winetasting #realaussiewine #somm #winelist #aussiewine #aussie #wineenthusiast #wineclub #Winewinewine #winetime #wino #wineman #wineo #winecountry #winehouse #winemaking #winemoments #sogood #great #winepassion #moreplease #vintage #shiraz #wine #decanter #loveit #vintage
