Just a hot tip, Father’s Day is 5 weeks tomorrow. And if your Dad is anything like mine, then he loves his wine. Which makes present shopping very easy.
The lovely team at Dialogue PR + Communications recently sent me this lovely free gift (thank you!) of the Grant Burge Wines ‘Filsell’ 2018 Old Vine Shiraz from SA’s Barossa Valley. And I must admit, it would make a great prezzie for those red wine loving Dads. It retails for approximately $44.
It’s drinking great now however it will age too. From what I’ve read, they reckon it could go up to 20 years from release. It picked up 94 points from Halliday. The vines in the Filsell Vineyard are 100 years Old having been planted in 1920!
In the glass it’s a gorgeous deep red purple colour. Tantalising aromas of juicy blackberries, plums, cherries and a sprinkling of spice rise up from the glass. While in the mouth it’s rather voluptuous, with bold flavours of berries, dark chocolate and coffee. It has nice meaty tannins and a rather savoury character. A serious red wine.
This wine was sent to me as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
