Jasper Hill Georgia’s Paddock Shiraz 2012
What: One of Australia’s most iconic and critically acclaimed Shiraz, made by a family run winery from Victoria’s Heathcote wine region.
Why: This wine is made to cellar for 20-plus years but even as a young Shiraz it is complex and approachable. You will be immediately seduced by the black crimson colour and delicious aromas which draw you into the full-bodied, savoury palate with flavours of sweet plum, blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice and spice. The wine has great overall structure, dry grippy tannins and a long generous finish. If you are enjoying it now make sure you decanter it first and allow the wine to breath for a few hours, otherwise put some away in the cellar and let time work its magic.
