Paul Osicka Shiraz 2011

Heathcote, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14.5%
Paul Osicka Wines is one of the longest established wine producers in the Heathcote wine region with the original Shiraz vines planted over 55 years ago. The annual release of Paul Osicka Heathcote Shiraz is always highly anticipated with the limited stocks snapped up quickly.

"94 Points. Extensive shoot thinning, leaf removal and bunch thinning, and hand picking over a 10-day period, trebled picking costs; the wine was open-fermented (14 days) and spent 16 months in French oak (30% new). The result is a most attractive medium-bodied shiraz, with red and black cherry fruit and persistent spice, pepper and tannin nuances reflecting the cool season. Drink By: 2025 Price: $35.00 Date Tasted: 17 Mar 2013 Alcohol: 13.5%" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Website.

"A crimson red in colour. A complex wine with raspberry, pepper, an earthy peatiness and hints of graphite, cinnamon and charry oak. Medium bodied, the wine is initially light on its feet, with blue and red fruits before fine-grained tannins carry the wine with a long savoury texture. Flavours of earth, complex spice are underpinned by cedar and vanillin oak. The wine leaves a lingering impression of understated power." - Simon Osicka, Osicka Wines.
