Five Geese “Jon’s Block” Reserve Shiraz 2012
Sue Trott and her son Jonathon Trott (and hence the name of this beauty) are both behind this complex Shiraz. In short, expect a long and intense palate with lovely spice and pepper, elegant oak and fine tannins
Attractive dark and dense crimson.
Very lifted and perfumed, spicy, almost nutty fruit/ oak complexity. A touch of that peaty character which is so typical of the old vines in Block 9.
Soft, rich, flavoursome palate with lovely spice and pepper complexity lingering. Not sweet, more savoury and elegant in style. A great follow on from the 2010 Reserve Shiraz. This is an impressive example of old vine Blewitt Springs Shiraz.
24 months in first and second year French oak hogsheads.
