Occam's Razor Shiraz 2012


I am probably alone in this view, but given the wonderful terroir of Heathcote, and even Coonawarra for that matter, I think while these regions have strong reputations, they don't have the grand reputations commensurate with what they are probably capable of.   That seems a pity.

Occam's Razor is the label of Emily Laughton of the family that runs the famous Jasper Hill estate in Heathcote.  The 2012 release is not shy, with aromatics of currant, cooked plums, pepper and dried spices.  The palate has medium length, a full body and is a full strength rendition of Heathcote shiraz with flavours of plums and pepper.  It however achieves balance despite its high abv.

Rating: Good, Abv: 15%, Price: $50, Vendors: http://www.wine-searcher.com/, Website: na, Tasted: 2014
