Grabbed this after a tour of Shaw+Smith plus tasting. Drank over a couple of hours, following a 2 hour decant. Loved it, Quintessential cool-climate shiraz, medium bodied fresh, dark fruits, coffee, bitter chocolate, earthy, peppery, whole bunch, savoury with super fine tannin bringing a gentle grip to a long finish. Balanced and complex - we kept coming back on each taste for something different until .. it was gone

At the Shaw and Smith tasting from the Cellar Door. The Balhannah Shiraz is made from a few select rows in the Shiraz vineyards. From a cooler year - very stalky, herbal and earthy. As different to Barossa Shiraz as you can imagine. Detailed and fine. Ultra ultra savoury and just medium weight. Not for everyone - vive la difference. Barb loved it. Just checked Huon Hooke’s rating where he gave 97 points and said “sensational Shiraz “.
