Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Seppelt, Chalambar Shiraz (2005)

Grampians/Bendigo/Pyrenees, VIC
13.5%, screwcap, non organic, RRP $28


The smokey bouquet led to a palate of roast tomato. The fruit that was there was rather simple. The tannins were quite pronounced. It finished short. On the second night there were more earthy notes to the bouquet and the tannins had settled. I found this to be a largely underwhelming wine, particularly given its reputation and the time it had been provided with to mature. No bottle variation here, they have all been the same over the years - 87.
