The Black Stump, 2008 (SE Australia)

Tasted 09/02/11. 14.5% ABV. A Laithwaites wine that really sits up and sings. c. £7. This is the Aussie Durif Shiraz. Deep purple colour. Tar, cinnamon and burnt chocolate on the nose. In the mouth it is still a little tannic but full, rich and gives you a mouthful of dark fruits with some buttersctoch on the finish. A lovely wine, excellent value for money. Laithwaites currently have the 2009, which I have 2 bottles of but havent tried yet. From 2011, 16.5/20
