I have always liked red wines from Australia and particularly from McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley. And when I found a bottle from this area, with one of my favorite grapes Shiraz and also with a stylish label, you can understand that I needed to buy it directly.
Mother's Milk Barossa Shiraz 2010 for 18 Euros
This delicious wine is produced by the virtual winemaker First Drop Wines that offer an exciting introduction to the wines from the better school of Barossa Valley. Behind this concept is Matt Gant and John Retsas, two vinfreaks that together create some magic in a bottle.
The colour is dark purple and the scent has nuances of dark berries, chocolate, pepper, and a spicy finish. The flavor is yummy good with nice fruitiness and hints of dark berries, plum, chocolate, pepper, herbs, vanilla and rubber. A perfect wine for soon upcoming menu with spring lamb.
Can recommend that you take a small glass the day before and let the rest stay until the next evening. Then the wine opens up nice, well worth waiting for.
