if you like Clare Valley shiraz this offering from Kevin Mitchell is hard to go past.the current vintage retails for over $40,so this must be value.i've drunk 3 bottles & i'm impressed.clare shiraz can be hard edged & slighly metallic when immature,but the covenant shows no trace,only lovely ripe purply fruit.the best thing about clare shiraz is that it is neither cool or warm climate.in a sense it can be the best [or worst !!]of both worlds.combining the ripe fruit of the barossa,with the elegance of cooler regions.whilst the 2002,2004,2005 have higher ratings,i wonder if they are drinking better now??
