Review: ***+ $ Boxhead Shiraz, South Australia, 2008 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Boxhead Shiraz.

Original tasting and review : This is Boxhead Shiraz, South Australia, 2008, finished at 14.5% alcohol.

In the glass: Medium deep brick, opaque in the center.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, fruity shiraz flesh.  From the aroma, seems like this will be classic south Australia!

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact as anticipated, showing a soft, elegant finish combined with classic eucalyptus.  Brightness and sleekness move to the finish.

In summary: Overall, rates three stars with a plus for friendliness on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  It is a best value and has held up very well to age.
