Briar Ridge Stockhausen Shiraz (6 per case)

Crafted in the time-honored Hunter Valley tradition, this wine showcases the hallmark qualities of the region. It unveils a concentration of vibrant wild red berry fruits, which, in their youthful exuberance, are elegantly framed by super-fine tannins. This exquisite interplay leads to a lengthy, linear finish graced by subtle oak spice.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: The wine boasts an entirely opaque, intense black-dark red hue.
  • Aroma: On the nose, it presents meaty aromas of black cherry and licorice, trailed by hints of smoky cedar, earth, and peppered herbs.
  • Palate: Mid-weight and savory, the palate unfolds with bright, spicy red plum and licorice flavors, intertwined with notes of dried clove. These flavors harmoniously merge into nuances of smoked meats, spicy vanillin cedar, and earthy pepper. Lively acidity and polished tannins contribute to a well-structured wine with a long, slightly rustic aftertaste.

Cellaring: This wine has the potential to evolve over the next 5-6 years.
