Wild Duck Creek Springflat Shiraz 2005

Sale price $110.00 Regular price $280.00

Tax included.

The 2005 Shiraz "Springflat" was aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak with the balance equal portions of seasoned French and American oak. It emits an alluring bouquet of cedar, saddle leather, boysenberry, mulberry, blackberry, and blueberry compote. Opulent, layered, with tons of flavor nicely concealing a blanket of ripe tannins, this superb Shiraz will evolve for 6-8 years and drink well through 2025. David "Duck" Anderson continues to lead the way in Heathcote. All of his wines come from estate vineyards with yields of under 1.5 tons of fruit per acre. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate # 173 Oct 2007 Jay Miller 94 Point
