Robert Stein [Mudgee NSW], Single Vineyard Reserve Shiraz 2014
The Robert Stein Reserve labels are eye-catchingly distinctive. A small niggle with this Shiraz label is that the vintage & variety are hard to discern especially in ambient dinner table mood-lighting.
That said, the wine is a thing of elegance and expression.
It has benefitted from 5 years of maturation and yet will continue to mature and reward for a few more years.
The fruit component, oak tannins, wild yeast influence are delightfully integrated and facilitate a smooth transition across the palate.
The varietal traits of red fruit, fine tannins & acid, vanillin oak all meld with undertones of smokiness and minerality to deliver a brroding, rich and sensual regional Shiraz of substance and longevity.
A pleasure to enjoy now.
Now to 5 years
