2013 BackVintage Langhorne Creek Shiraz
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW

James Halliday 90 points

Huon Hooke Bronze Ribbon

Background

The 2013 growing season was close to ideal, although a hot, dry autumn hurried ripeness along early.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Deep purple-red.

Nose
Ripe dark plums with subtle oak. Shows some elegance.

Structure / Palate
Medium to full bodied and round in the mouth. Good depth of dark fruits, finishing with plenty of soft tannin.

This is a fleshy, generously flavoured, yet soft wine that’s characteristic of the Langhorne Creek region. The soft balance makes it delicious now with flavoursome red meat courses, pasta and barbecued foods. It will gain further complexity past 2020.

James Halliday 2018 Wine Companion:
"Straightforward warm climate shiraz blazing on all cylinders. Expect a cascade of dark fruits before a lick of reductive camphor and a wee tannic jolt from the addition of 6% cabernet sauvignon, serves to bring it all into line. Very well done. 4% grenache rounds out the package."
90 points. Drink to 2028.
