Heathvale Vineyard The Reward Shiraz 2010
This is a pretty medium bodied wine with flavours of mixed roasted spices, cracked pepper and Christmas cherries. These flavour sit long time on my palate with the oak adding a sophisticated creamy aspect before a nice an easy end. The profile is more savoury but that is normal for the area. For a wine that is dry grown in the area, it doesn't have the palate weight but that is what is more appealing to the story the wine is trying to tell. I like it a lot and will get better with time in the bottle.
