Tuesner’s Albert shiraz ably fulfils any brief for high quality, full bodied Barossan shiraz. The 2012 vintage is a very good release, as usual. It has aromatics of cherry, plum, cedar, cherry liqueur and undergrowth. The palate sees long length and reminders of plums, cherry and oak. Overall, the impression is of a wine that has depth, length and fruit power, without being over the top.
