Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Sunday, 7 August 2011

Cumulus, Climbing Shiraz (2006)

Orange, NSW
13.5%, screwcap, non organic, around $25

Deep red. A nose of blueberries and cloves. The palate was juicy with an array of red berry fruits sprinkled with notes of vanilla and spice, fine tannins and good length. The palate wasn't as complex as I had expected from the row of gold medals (and two trophies) decorating the bottle like bling, nevertheless it was a very enjoyable wine - 93.
