As with the previous vintages of Oscar Semmler Shiraz the 2002 shows big and full, almost “juicy” flavours of plum and red berry fruit. Spicy French oak characters give support to the sweet fruit mid palate concentration. The finish is long, highlighted by fruit clean acidity and soft drying tannin.

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.
The mild conditions of this vintage resulted in a wine that is dark and dense in colour. Fragrant cassis and chocolate are abundant. A powerful palate showing great richness, structure and length. Very approachable in its early years due to the incredible fruit sweetness but 5-7 years is recommended to fully reveal the charms of this wine.
The Tokay shows plenty of caramel, toffee and nutty like characters and has a sweet, rich, luscious palate, finishing round and a touch dry from the oak tannin and warm alcohol. Drink now or cellar.
