(2003 Vintage) The 2003 vintage was initially warm and dry, becoming milder later in the season. These conditions prompted an early start of harvest with the fruit reaching optimum ripeness evenly. The vintage produced Shiraz with dense color, impressive varietal characters and soft tannins.
great way to start off my yearly dinner of stuffed veal chops my dad always makes - the only thing I've ever asked for. Going Australian made sense since it was also a goodbye for my sis b4 she heads to Italy for 3 months & her subletter is from Melbourne.
