Charles Melton-Nine Popes-Shiraz-2002-1.5L

SKU: 28
Delivery date: Dispatch within 1-3 day's

One of the standout wines of the vintage from one of the standout blokes in the Barossa Valley.

 

There's so much fruit in here it's hard to believe they got a cork in, raspberries drive the show, really intense and ripe with earthy undertones, gentle spice and oak too.

95/100
Wine Companion
Fragrant, spicy aromas; has far more structure than many such blends, but not over the top; a delicious compote of black fruits, red fruits and a variety of spices.
, James Halliday Issue: Dec 2004



87/100
The Wine Advocate
Funky, smoky, oaky, herbal, peppery scents jump from the glass of the deep ruby-tinged 2002 Nine Popes, Melton’s homage to Chateauneuf du Pape. More herbaceous than usual, with sweet fruit, medium body, and a style that begs for drinking.

Torbreck-The Factor-Shiraz-2002-750mL

Our homage to the great old vines of the Barossa Valley, this wine is composed of 100% Shiraz. Complex and concentrated, the wine is cloaked in velvet tannins that will continue to develop for another 10 at least. The Factor is all that you would expect of a pureblood Barossa Shiraz.

Torbreck-Descendant-Shiraz Viognier-2003-750mL

The Descendant is a single vineyard Shiraz-Viognier, which as the name implies, is a direct descendant of RunRig. The Descendant vineyard Shiraz expresses tar and black olive, offset wonderfully by the velvety mouth feel with the jasmine and apricot aromatics of Viognier.

Shirvington-Estate-Shiraz-2004-750mL

This wine is deep maroon with perfumed aromas of dark chocolate and blackberry. There are also some hints of coffee and golden syrup. The palate is an intense explosion of sweet, luscious fruit and toasty oak, even so the texture is silky smooth and creamy and seems to glide over the tongue. Well balanced, the wine finishes with cinnamon and licorice that linger for some time.
