"This is how the great Barossa Shirazes used to taste" Oz Clarke
A great wine from a great vintage: the colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
The Eldredge Blue Chip Shiraz has been a favourite for many years. The 2018 didn’t disappoint. A single vineyard, classic Australian Shiraz for a very fair price.
The delivery service was as always, spot on.
In the price bracket that this wine retails at, then it's one of the all time classics. Clearly needs a few years to open out properly, which means I will just need to buy annually. It's the only solution this wine deserves. I already know it ages well, so I will just need to make the space. Delivery was as it said on the tin - very good.
I am always reluctant to recommend a particular wine. I may like it, but someone else might not. However I am happy to, and often do, recommend the Australian Wine Centre . Excellent service, and if anything does go wrong, there is prompt and generous recompense .
Dont regret taking the recommendation from Craig for this wine. A good shiraz and seems like something I could keep, if it wasnt burning a hole in the cupboard
Another good year from this consistently solid Shiraz. Thanks for the recommendation years ago Craig!!
