Witchmount Shiraz 2007

Witchmount created quite a stir by winning the "best shiraz in the world" category in a French wine show for its 2004 shiraz.  Interest piqued, I had been wanting to try the wines of this estate for some time.  I recently saw the 2007 vintage in a local independent wine shop, and thought, why not.  The 2007 has an aroma of pepper, spices, oak and plums.  You can smell the oak a bit, but it's not over-oaked, I don't think.  The palate is quite elegant with a touch of buttery length, and is pleasant.  Sunbury does seem to be a good home for elegant mid-weight shiraz.  84 to 85 points.
