A truly remarkable Shiraz. This powerful yet extremely smooth and aromatic wine fills your mouth with lovely ripe, sweet fruit. It will amaze you with its unctuous texture and silky tannins. The Blue Eyed Boy on the label is Sarah and Sparky's son, Luke.
Pairs with Thai green curry, spit roasts, gourmet sausages, coq au vin, slow cooked meats, cheese and desserts
"The 2009 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz is a 20% Langhorne Creek and 80% McLaren Vale blend matured in 71% new and 29% 1 year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it is profoundly scented of blueberry and black cherry with touches of mint, mocha and the faintest whiff of damp loam. Very full-bodied, the bold, ultra-ripe fruit is well supported by medium-firm chewy tannins and medium-high acid, leading to a very long and pure if slightly warm finish. Drink this one 2012 to 2017+.
The Wine Advocate
"Rich and ripe, with a burnt edge to the spice and dried tomato flavors that remain strong against the blueberry and plum fruit. The tannins are well-meshed. Best from 2012 through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
