Wine Of The Week – Grant Burge Filsell Old Vine Shiraz 2008

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Barossa, Australia

91 Points — David Lawrason

This pours deep purple-ruby. Great nose – very perfumed, sweet and laden with well-integrated violets, blackberry, eucalyptus, licorice and vanilla. It’s full-bodied, dense yet very smooth and a touch sweet, with very fine tannin. Excellent focus and length, for drinking now or over the next decade. It was one of the best vintages in recent years. Tasted May 2011. (May 2011)
