I have opened a few bottles of this 2006 wine over the past week or two. It comes from a small winery with a wine maker committed to high quality fruit. The district is recognised as a great shiraz zone.
Wines from this region can cost over $50. The wine is under screw cap. Delicious is a fair description. Plenty of shiraz fruit aromas on the nose. It comes on to the palate with a gentle burst of cherry like flavours, nice touch of oak and lovely length on the swallow.Drinking well now but has another 10 years in it. And best of all it retails for about $18 and is readily available.
Well done Peter Cummins at Water Wheel Vineyards, Bridgewater on Loddon. (Bendigo Shiraz)
