Jasper Hill Vineyards Georgia’s Paddock Shiraz 2006, Australia

Dark ruby in color with a cloudy brick rim.

On the nose, currants, plums, light wood, vanilla, spices, wet leaves, forest floor, pencil lead, vinaigrette, leather and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and elegant with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, oak, red currants, vanilla, licorice, earth, eucalyptus, vinaigrette, leather, dark chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a very nice aged Shiraz from Australia. Not fully balanced anymore, but showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Showing a nice tangy ending, which would pair well with food.

Interesting and enjoyable, although this was probably better a couple of years ago.

  1. Nice to see something from my home state, one of the original Heathcote wineries. The mid noughties were a time of a bad drought and the ripeness at 15% shows this perhaps. From 2010 onwards, when we finally had some rain, both Greorgia’s and Emily’s show much better fruit brightness. Hope you get to taste more from Victoria, especially from Great Western. Cheers, Andrew


  2. Excellent notes as always. This wine and others in their range can be very hard to get in Australia. I, unfortunately, have not had the pleasure of trying any of them. They generally cellar well. Very kind of your friends to share it with you.
