The 2014 Eagles' Nest Shiraz has a deep dark core with garnet rim. On the nose, aromas of freshly crushed red pepper kernel, intense blueberry and subtle black cherry are delicately entwined with a faint smoky wisp and baking spices. On the palate creamy mouth filling tannins integrate with pepper spice to embrace your taste buds and deliver a delicious, savoury flavour sensation. Well judged acidity focuses these flavours as they resonate in the aftertaste. A truly great wine from maturing vineyards, this wine will age gracefully for 20 years from vintage.
The nose initially shows primary Sauvignon Blanc fruit aromas, including flavours of guava and white pear. These notes are underpinned by a fresh zesty core, complemented by lime, oyster shell salinity and some spicy celery leaf notes. The palate is fresh, with vibrant acidity and tropical fruit aromas carrying through. Six months' lees contact has bolstered the mouth-feel, adding weight and structure to the pallet. This wine will be ideally paired with sushi, grilled fish and shell fish. Enjoy now or to 2020.
