Hanging Rock Heathcote Shiraz 2000

Big but balanced.

Reviewed by Figjam - Saturday 7 April 2012 08:52 PM

I'm usually critical of big for big's sake cult shiraz. This wine does have a rich sweetness common to many of these wines but this wine does it well. It's opulent - full of dark rich cassis and plum type notes but in no way overripe or burnt. Tannis are finer than you would expect. The 14% ALV is in not overly hot and the oak is unusually subtle. All in all a well balanced, big aussie shiraz that delivers pretty good value for money. Consume with steak, pasta / all the usual for big shiraz.
