2008 Oscar's Estate Vineyard Shiraz, Barossa (Australia) - Review



Purchased this one back in April as part of the New Zealand + Easter Vintages Release.

OSCAR'S ESTATE VINEYARD SHIRAZ 2008 - Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia (#225631) - $15.95

Tasting Note:
Pepper, mint, herbal, blackberry, light oak/smoke aromas. On the palate, it opens with surprising gobs of sweet mulberry. Settles down with ripe blackberry fruits and cocoa. Easy drinking and fruit forward. It should pair nicely with the Chicken Lasagne we're having tonight!

  1. Just did a currency conversion into £'s...sounds like a nice wine at reasonable price :)

  2. It definitely is. I would highly recommend it for when you have guests over - it's not overbearing. Can you get this in the UK?
