Tahbilk Shiraz 2012

Tahbilk’s shiraz from the 2012 vintage resembles a lighter style of a Heathcote wine.  I thought this a rather odd thought, until of course recalling that there’s only approximately 50 kilometres between the two regions.  There’s a deep intensity of colour with this shiraz, with aromatics that remind of red meat, plums and plenty of dried spice – for the latter, think clumsy attempt to access the back of the cupboard resulting in spice bottles falling over in unison.  The palate is balanced with medium length, and nuances of earth and spice.  There’s some anise characters too on the nose and palate.  Overall, this is pleasant drinking.
