Chris Ringland Hoffmann Vineyard Shiraz, Barossa Valley 2008

MOP 3,380.00

Appearance: Opaque Scarlet red-black. Brick red rim. Aroma: Initial impressions of milk chocolate, asian spices and white pepper, underpinned by smoky cedar vanillin. As the wine opens up these characters are supplemented by mineral, black olive, plum sauce and mint. Palate: Disarmingly gentle and structured. Generous helpings of dark, red berry fruit, with hints of liquorice, tar and more chocolate. Very soft tannins on the mid-palate are balanced by the natural acidity, evident from a mild vintage, which carry the flavours through to a long, satisfying finish.
Bottle Size: 750 ml
Grape: Shiraz

Description

“Chris Ringland Shiraz has been one of Australia’s most loved wines over the past few years with its immense concentration of bold, intense fruit. Chris Ringland, the man behind other such legendary names as Three Rivers Shiraz, has created a wine that is made from mature Northern Barossa vines and showcases the craftsmanship that has previously been available to the lucky few able to get their hands on a bottle of Three Rivers or The Chris Ringland Shiraz, but now finally at an easily affordable price !
The Chris Ringland CR Shiraz has a dedicated following as it represents the best of huge Barossa reds with loads of concentrated fruit. It is a high quality wine with all the hallmarks of rich, old vine shiraz wines but also very approachable and easy to drink.”
