Killerby Shiraz 2001

92 points

Margaret River, Western Australia. 13.5%

Forest floor aromas on a wine that is dark red. The Brett is surprising for this producer but it’s part of the character. Otherwise there is some sweet tomato leaf up- front flavour and tart acid on the finish but then some long flavours. The mid palate is abut missing it’s true but the total package is refreshing and complex. More Cornas than Australia.

This bottle was pretty impressive. Western Australia, like Hawkes Bay, could be the Cabernet, Chardonnay, Shiraz all rounder for fine interesting wines.
