Coonawarra & Barossa, South Australia. 13.5%
Consumed in Bordeaux France alongside some great claret (Rauzan-Segla 85 and Haut-Bailly 88).
It seems such a strange wine. It’s not the Shiraz as the Cabernet is dominant. It’s the added acidity, the oak (which must be American) and the slight mintiness.
The nose is gorgeous, by far the best feature.
It’s a good wine but I can see why collectors like me favor Bordeaux in their cellars.
