Victoria RRP ~$16
This wine goes on sale periodically and is a great buy for those who like more of the white pepper spice Shiraz from cooler areas than the Barossa. The tannins are quite serious and a little rough, but for the price, the complexity, the length, and style are excellent. This wine had already thrown a crust, so some of the tannins had already dropped out. It improved with both age and aeration. We found it tasting better after decanting and sipping for an hour. The fruit is good, with more of the raspberry end of the Shiraz flavours, than the plum end. Worth buying 6 or 12 when on sale.
