Grant Burge Filsell Old Vine Shiraz 2011
The Filsell is a refined and elegant wine, displaying more ethereal characters than previous vintages. An incredible depth of colour gives some indication as to the vibrant aromas which arise from the glass, which has lifted notes of ripe raspberries, sweet spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) and choc-mint layered subtly with aniseed and freshly baked bread. The palate is fine, with seamlessly integrated tannins and rouned acidity. The concentration and length of flavour is excellent, with sweet red berry fruits, spice and milk chocolate lingering on the palate well after tasting.
