Meerea Park Alexander Munro Shiraz 2014 14% Hunter Valley Australia



Halliday 97 points. This is Meerea Park’s flagship wine made from the best parcel of Shiraz fruit each year. 40 years old vines (average age) deliver a depth and class rarely discovered. Matured in 50% new French oak barriques. 2014 vintage is considered the best since the legendary 1965 vintage. Perfect growing conditions coupled with trouble free ripening and harvest period gave immaculate Shiraz grapes with which to begin.

Blackberry, blueberry and ripe plum fruit characters blend with dark chocolate and mocha filling the mouth with a sublime sensual explosion. This is perfectly balanced, its constituent parts woven together in a stylish harmony - so good it almost sings to you. Probably the best Shiraz Meerea Park have ever made. Simply magnificent. This is approachable now but will cellar for 30 years.
