The Underhill Shiraz comes from an 8-acre block planted in 1973. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Underhill Shiraz is scented of black cherries and red currants over hints of Provence herbs, black pepper and cedar. Medium-bodied with plenty of mouth-filling, expressive red berry and baking spice flavors, it has a medium to firm level of rounded tannins, crisp acid and a long finish.
“A blend of shiraz, mataro, viognier and marsanne, shiraz the major player. The hue is
excellent, the bouquet is fragrant, and the medium-bodied palate positively sings; the red fruits are
wreathed in a web of fine spices, mainly fruit-derived, but in part from French oak. A lovely,
unforced wine. Drink now or in 20 years time.”
