Hobbs Gregor Barossa Valley Shiraz 2005  


Barossa Valley, South Australia - Australia

750ml / 15.5 ABV

Blend: 100% Shiraz

96 points Jay Miller (The Wine Advocate)

The 2005 Gregor Shiraz was made from grapes dried on racks prior to crushing and fermentation in the style of Amarone. More deeply colored than its siblings, it has a liqueur, port-like character to its aromas and flavors. Large in scale and richly fruity, it conceals enough ripe tannin to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink this singular effort from 2015 to 2035.

Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep dark red black hue. Powerful aromas of ripe black cherries, dark plums and liquorice waft from the glass displaying incredible intensity with underlying dark chocolate, vanillin oak and spice notes. Full-bodied, this super rich Shiraz possesses flavours of dark plums, liquorice and dark chocolate that engulf the palate followed by vanillin oak characters and spice. Soft opulent mouthfeel with velvet smooth tannins. Very powerful with a long aftertaste of dark plum, liquorice, dark chocolate, vanillin oak and spice.

Grilled or roast beef, barbeque, oxtail, strong cheese.
