Seize The Day Shiraz 2014

Barossa Shiraz at the hand of Peter Milhinch and Sharyn Rogers. Grown on a vineyard at Seppeltsfield. 165 dozen made.

This is slick and intense. Oak and fruit, well married, its inkiness served fresh. It tastes off boysenberry and sweet plum, spearmint and milk chocolate. It has might and power but it’s not over the top, though the level of oak here will disturb some. I looked at this over the course of 24 hours and as time went on the fruit pushed ever-more to the front, though oak was always clear and present. Tannin presents as fine-grained but assertive; you’d call it well integrated but with a slight inclination to strike out on its own. The price is ambitious but every indication is that a long and positive future lies ahead.
