15 year old Shiraz – yes please!
We recently had family friends around for dinner and they brought this beauty from their cellar – a Scotchsmans Hill 2005 Shiraz from Geelong, VIC.
We also recently visited the Scotchmans Hill cellar door where we tried some of the younger vintages of this wine!
I made a 10-hour slow cooked pulled pork and it went pretty well with the wine.
It’s definitely showing it’s age in the glass with a red-brown brick like colour. The aromas were lovely, think black fruits, spice and aromatic wood. Black cherry and plums comes through on the palate with fine tannins and a lovely lick of vanilla. It’s drinking beautifully right now.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
