    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine has deep, dark red/black hues, lifted aromas of mulberry, raspberry, coffee and kirsch. The bramble, chocolate, methol and rosemary fl avours that fi ll the mouth are present in abundance, with delicate, sensual and ripe tannins playing a structural role. This wine is ideally suited to good food, good friends and good conversation.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good, deep colour; at 480 m, the Lodge Hill Vineyard is one of the highest in the Clare Valley, and the wine has more spicy/savoury characters than usual in the region; the medium- to full-bodied palate has good texture and structure to its black fruit flavours.

    The 2008 Lodge Hill Shiraz offers intense notes of warm blackberry, spearmint and licorice with an earthy undercurrent of loam, tar and tree bark. The rich, medium to full bodied palate is nicely balanced with crisp acidity and a medium level of gritty tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2016+.

    Delicious wine. The ripe fruit flavors (black cherry, blackberry, raspberry) are backed by an excellent herbal note - think mint and eucalyptus. Great acidity, medium tannins, lovely balance and a long finish. A group of us polished off two bottles faster than we should have - it was a little too easy going down. Great match for burgers, though I'd enjoy this with many different dishes as it is not too heavy, but rich enough to match with other bold flavors.
