95 Points - James Halliday

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.

"95 Points. The complexity of the bouquet and palate reflect extensive work in both the vineyard and winery; distinctively bright and fresh, light to medium-bodied, but with very good length and balance; the flavours are more in a red fruit spectrum than black, with spice and pepper coming through; the tannins, while persistent, are fine and balanced. Screwcap. 13.8%. To 2032. $35" - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2015 Edition.

"95 Points. Impressive Heathcote shiraz from Paul Osicka. Made from vines planted in the 1950s. Fermented in 15 separate parcels, with different winemaking approaches taken to each batch. Natural ferments, whole bunches, extended time on skins and the like. “The ferments were pressed together and batched based on specific soil type in the vineyard. They were then matured in 30% new French oak (hogsheads) for about 16 months prior to blending.” Fine tannin, fine flavour, and fine silken length. There’s no mistaking this wine’s quality. It tastes of plum, undergrowth, spicy oak, gum leaf, clove and pepper. Tannin seems to come in wafer-thin layers, perfectly spaced, perfectly collated. Terrific." Alcohol: 13.8% Price: $35 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2017 - 2027+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
