2011 Lowe Block 8 Organic Shiraz

imageNo longer just organic but now biodynamic. Hopefully the next release will have been fermented in an egg to truly harness the benign and benevolent cosmic forces which see fit to overlook the fact that not all such birthing vessels are the same shape as a chicken’s.

The cooler vintage sees a more nimble and medium-bodied expression of Shiraz than one might normally associate with Mudgee. Plums, craisins and drinking chocolate. Peppery with a touch of earthy leafiness on the back-palate. Eager acidity and just a rub of smudgy tannin. 89
