Kabminye Irma Adeline 2002

89 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

A blend of Shiraz 60% and Mataro 20 with 10% Grenache and a further 10% of white grapes (Marsanne/Rousanne/Ugni Blanc).

Shiraz from Tanunda the rest from Lyndoch.

Still very much going strong after 8 years (no doubt in part due to the screwcap). Reminiscent of a Southern French wine, with a tiny touch of spicy finish not surprising given the blend, but more alcohol less tannin less vinosity less grapey. More pristine. The alcohol is unfortunately noticeable.
