2015 PIRRAMIMMA WAR HORSE SHIRAZ
RRP $80 / 2040
A sweet, exaggerated style but an undeniably powerful one. This has blackberry jam and fresh, cedary oak laid on, violet-like notes ramping the headiness yet more. Tannin struts through the wine; acid buzzes. It’s a whopper with a bit of wow factor. CM 14.8% alc. This wine was produced from the oldest shiraz vineyard on the property, planted in 1970. One of my first jobs when I commenced employment after completing my schooling was to help plant this vineyard. The S1 Shiraz Block is my vintage indicator block as it always ripens first and always produces outstanding shiraz fruit quality.
