Roast meat, earthy, game and new leather on the wonderful, complex nose. Dry, full bodied wine, which is firm, yet with a round elegant middle palate. The flavours on the palate are more fruit driven than the nose, with plums and black cherries which enhances the length and provides the setting for a long minty finish. Lower than average alcohol adds to the pleasure of this wine.
Eperosa Magnolia 1965 Shiraz 2020, Barossa Valley, SA
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
