Weekly Wine Tasting: Brown's Brothers Heathcote Shiraz 2009
The limited release Brown's Brothers Heathcote Shiraz 2009 is one of these things, giving you a good reason to go out and panic bulk buy, like now.
From the prized Heathcote vineyards this wine
has battled through a bad vintage
and come on on top.
It's deliciously plush, velvety taste is given an extra level as it still remains a relatively light wine (despite the high alcohol
content which is a feat in itself).
The aromas of blackberry
and spice blend with the rich oaks, black cherries
and soft tannins on the palette and gets better the more you drink - that's not saying you should get carried away.
This is a Shiraz to really take your time over and enjoy.
Value for money: It's on the wrong side of £10 but trust us it's worth every penny.
Dinner Party Rating: Guaranteed success, happy purple lips a-plenty.
