Dalwhinnie Moonambel Shiraz 1995

I always look forward to drinking Dalwhinnie’s shiraz, particularly those with a bit of age on them.  Dalwhinnie is situated in the quixotically named gently rolling hills of the Victorian Pyrenees and is situated 595m above sea level at around 36.5c latitude.  For those wondering where to visit next, it really is beautiful and unexpectedly remote country out there.  Dalwhinnie’s shiraz remains their best wine, in my opinion.

The 1995 vintage is simply a stunner.  The wine starts in a demure fashion, with aromas of gently cloaked herbs and spices emerging from the glass.  The spell cast, plums, spices and pepper wash over the palate, with outstanding length offering a long reminder as to what has passed.  A truly exceptional wine.  96 points

Tasted: December 2011
