Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2009

I know Mattinson has reviewed it, but I thought I’d throw my hat into the ring. It’s a more modest style of Alexander Munro this vintage, in keeping with the ‘classic’ style of 2009.

Blackberry and dark cherry fruit, creamy French spice oak, chocolate and earth – depth to smell, and to taste. It’s medium to full bodied, flush and ripe – but just ripe enough, not over. Has a slight bacony savouriness and excellent persistent tannins running right through to the finish. Mild influence from stalks. As a young wine it’s already complex in both flavour and texture. Bloody good. Given time should rate higher again.
