Winter Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz 2003

90 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14%

This reminds me of 2003 Bordeaux, not that this shiraz is anything like claret, partly it’s just the French oak, but mainly it is the vintage character. It has the aromas and taste of a super hot vintage. Ripe, but not in a sweet or alcoholic sense, ripe/toasted/dried characters. With 2003 surrounded by the excellent, in South Australia, 2002 and 2004 vintages there really isn’t any reason to buy 2003.

That said, Winter Creek again produce an interesting and fine wine. One of the best new brands from Barossa.
