品酒筆記:
此酒來自 40 至 90 年的老樹,比起它的兄弟,此酒有多一點新橡木桶。它深紫色,加上強勁的果味香氣,中度至飽滿酒體,純淨得漂亮,雕琢得優美的性格,中度酒精,少許緊致的總體印象。給它兩至三年瓶中陳年,也可以再未來十多年享受。

Tasting Notes:
The 2005 Shiraz is fashioned from 40- to 90-year-old vines and sees a bit more new oak than its sibling. Its opaque purple color is followed by superb fruit on the attack, medium to full body, a beautifully pure, nicely nuanced personality, moderate alcohol (14.8%), and a slightly closed overall impression. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age and consume it over the following decade.
