John Glaetzer John's Blend Margarete's Shiraz 2010



John Glaetzer sure is a good winemaker.  This is another excellent shiraz release from this label, surpassing I think the 2009, which I also highly rated.  Its aromatics remind of plums, pepper and toasted cedar.  The palate is soft, fresh, well proportioned and has very long length, its flavours mostly of plums.  Langhorne Creek at its finest.  Very Good

Abv: 14.5%, Price: $30, Vendors and website: http://www.johnsblend.com.au (warning: the website has unexpected and dare I say unnecessary audio), Tasted: 2015
