Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Chalkers Crossing, Hilltops Shiraz (2009)

Hilltops, New South Wales
14%, screwcap, around $33

This wine's identity was revealed at the first whiff, with a bouquet of vibrant cool climate red fruit. The palate was medium bodied and delivered an array of intense fruit, along with spice and vanilla oak in support. With impressive structure, this dry red wine was a delight and demonstrated the classic skill of French born and trained winemaker, Ms Celine Rousseau - 94.
