Vasse Felix Shiraz 2005

I am not perhaps the biggest fan of Margaret River shiraz – it is somewhat overshadowed at home and away. But it can be quite good, and I’ve had some well aged shiraz from Capel Vale that was stunning and has long kept me open minded. This 2005 release from Vasse Felix weighs in at 14.8abv and opened to a rather herbal and minty aroma which became curranty with time in the glass. The palate was soft with hints of plums, currants, evident acidity and medium length. Quite good but no more. Drink over the next couple of years. 85 points

Abv: 14.8%
Price: $31
