Review: **** $$ Nugan Estate Parish Vineyard Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia, 2008 = BEST VALUE

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Nugan Estate Parish Vineyard McLaren Vale Shiraz.

Original tasting and review : This is Nugan Estate Parish Vineyard Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia, 2008, finished at 14.5% alcohol and first sampled six years from vintage date, in November, 2014.


In the glass: Deep mahogany, opaque from a half inch in.

On the nose: Poured at cool room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows soft, furry deep black fruit.  From the aroma, seems like this will be fat and yet fresh.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact showing round, red and black berries, awesomely fat, rich and luxurious, bringing furry grit around the sweet edges and showing a soft, lazy finish.

In summary: Overall, rates a rare four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, making this an easy call as a best value.
