    Winemaker's Notes:

    2006 was the coolest vintage experienced on record since 1982, which saw restrained, zippy and lighter styles of wine produced than usual. Fruit was harvested much later than normal, however in the warmer regions of Western Australia this fruit was sufficiently ripe yet without excessively ripe flavours.

    The 2006 Hazard Hill Shiraz was fermented at warm temperatures in closed fermenters then pressed gently to ensure minimal extraction of harsh, bitter tannins. Each batch was matured separately in a combination of stainless steel tank and oak barrels prior to blending and bottling. Micro-oxidation was employed to some degree with the stainless steel-matured batches in order to harmonise the structure.

    Aromas of red berries and plums lead with a dash of dusty vanilla. The fleshy palate shows blueberries, raspberries and ripe plums with edges of mixed herbs and zante currants. Silky tannins offer understated support the length of the palate, finishing crisp and clean with just enough structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A terrific value, Plantagenet's 2006 Hazard Hill Shiraz is a silky, feminine-styled Shiraz that starts with smoky, slightly floral notes, then adds in peppery spice, delicate red berries and just a hint of chocolate before leaving your mouth watering on the finish. Drink now.

    Still a little sharp, but fair value.

    This is still too sharp, even for its cheap price. Yes I know that you only get what you pay for, but not with Aussie wines, often. There is a tremendous amount of sediment, which could have been racked off.
