Grampians Estate Mafeking Shiraz 2004

I've been very happy with the batch of Grampians shiraz I purchased a couple of years ago during my last visit to the region.  On day 2, this wine had some good depth of flavour and an evident black pepper aroma, with a touch of anise and a slight baked character.  On day 1, though, it was less interesting - pepper and spice, and some length but not a lot.  The wine clearly benefited from a little oxidation.  84 points.

Abv: 14.7%
Price: about $24
