2012 GRANT BURGE MESHACH SHI­RAZ

Halliday - Supplement - - Shiraz & Blends Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $184 / 2042

The 22nd re­lease of Meshach cel­e­brates the great ‘12 Barossa Val­ley vin­tage. The colour is still deep crim­son-pur­ple, set­ting the pat­tern for the bou­quet and palate to fol­low. A wine of the high­est qual­ity in the Olympian class of Barossa Val­ley shi­raz, seam­less, calmly pow­er­ful and per­fectly bal­anced. Black fruits dom­i­nate, but this is no one-di­men­sional power play, with hints of liquorice, bit­ter cho­co­late and graphite. The tan­nins and oak con­tri­bu­tions are per­fectly placed and paced. 14% alc.

CHIEF WINE­MAKER Craig Stans­bor­ough What do you be­lieve makes this wine so spe­cial?

An iconic wine hand­picked from near cen­tu­ry­old vines that al­low tremen­dous con­cen­tra­tion and in­ten­sity. It has a pow­er­ful foun­da­tion with ex­cep­tional length and struc­ture main­tain­ing aro­mas of plum, mul­ber­ries and dark cho­co­late, com­ple­mented by spices and earthy char­ac­ters. This is a truly distinc­tive shi­raz from an out­stand­ing vin­tage.
