Colio Estate 2007 CEV 9-Barrel Shiraz

Another low production wine from the stellar 2007 vintage. Back in 2005, winemaker Tim Reilly created the first Shiraz ever for Colio and called it “6-Barrel Shiraz”, in 2007, another good red vintage, he got a little more to play with – and once again created something extraordinary. Aged 16 months in 100% Hungarian oak, or which 30% was new. Great red fruit, spice and pepper on the nose, the palate is smooth and supple, there’s great fruit in the mouth with solid tannin structure, lots of raspberry notes with an interesting change up of pepper from nose-to-mouth: white pepper aromas, black pepper palate. This wine must be tried and buyed (I mean bought) to be believed it’s from Ontario. Price: $24.95 – Rating: *****
