Original tasting and review : This is Shoo Fly Shiraz, South Australia, 2010, finished at 14.5% alcohol.
In the glass: Deep burgundy with brick cast, almost opaque in the middle.
On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, full, lush, soft, with hints of cedar and lightly aged bricks. From the aroma, seems like this will be soft, red fruited and possibly rich.
On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact rich, full, lighly oaked, slightly aged in its soft feel. Rich, soft red, cedar aromatic fruits. Clean finish.
In summary: Overall, rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale. Best value because of the bargain price point.
