She Oak Hill Estate Shiraz 2008

Look, this wine was pretty good.  It had an aroma of plums, pepper and intense anise.   On the palate, there were plums, length, heat and power.  I would describe this as a "heart warming" wine, in that it was quite coiled and powerful, and seemed to clear a path down my throat.  Did I like it?  Yes.  I tried it at the ever over achieving honest fare restaurant that is the Farmers Arms in Daylesford.  Is it the type of wine I like to drink every day?  Probably not: it was a little strong.  87 points (7.2/10).

Abv: 14.8%
Price: $25
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Sometimes
