Seppelt Aerin's Vineyard Shiraz 2008

Here I was thinking that I was purchasing a wine from an obscure local winery in the Heathcote region that had escaped my attention.  Closer reading of the back label revealed that this in fact is a Seppelt wine.  It had an aroma of plums, a sweet fruited note a bit like a young "jubey" Cotes du Rhone, cola and, more surprisingly, were there minerals as well, on a shiraz?  On the palate, there were moderately heart warming, if baked a little, plum flavours.  Overall, pleasant if a bit "only ok" drinking, if that makes sense.  I see Mr Graham over at the Australian Wine Review also reviewed the same wine.  For the record, I disliked the label :)  84 points (6.9/10)
