The Islander Estate Vineyards Old Rowley Shiraz Blends 750mL
Made from our low-yielding Grenache and Shiraz bush vines Old Rowley is almost Burgundian in its elegance. A beautiful, medium bodied wine which is about freshness rather than power, beguiling the drinker with its supple raspberry and boysenberry flavours. Fresh and soft with lifted florals gently taming the vanillin oak and clove notes, this is truly a charmer of a wine.
Critics Rating: 2019 Vintage: A brilliant purple sheen is an enticing introduction to this smart, young shiraz grenache. Softness is the key here together with a discreet, still emerging personality. It has a way to go. Pepper, spice, blackberries and red earth aromas. Deliciously ripe palate with dark cherry, black fruits and grenache violets and confection. Tannins are firm. Bottle age is a must. Tasted 3/2/20. Rated 95/100 Aust Wine Companion. Drink to 2032.
Wine Fitting: Medium bodied red
