The 2005 Wolf Blass Presidents Selection Shiraz is rich red in color with deep purple hues. The wine displays aromas of raspberries and plums supported by varietal characteristic white pepper and spice notes. The palate is rich, round and soft, with concentrated berry fruit and great length of flavor. 14 months barrel maturation in seasoned and new American and French oak has enhanced the complexity and integration of the fine, velvety tannins.
Suggested food: Eye-fillet steak with peppercorn sauce
Cellaring: Enjoy now or cellar for up to five to seven years.
Full-bodied, with soft tannins and plenty of oak, this easy-to-drink Shiraz fits perfectly in the Wolf Blass idiom of accessibility. Caramel and dark plum flavors add hints of vanilla and toast, finishing long. A perfect steakhouse choice when you want to keep the wine tab reasonable.
Crisp in texture, with savory spice and herb flavors against juicy blackberry and cherry notes, finishing with fine tannins. Drink now through 2010.
