5 reviews for 2015 Cabernet Shiraz, Estate

  1. Huon Hooke

    2015 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – Huon Hooke (February 2018)

    Excellent, deep red/purple colour. Attractive ripe cassis cabernet aromas backed by nicely balanced oak. The wine is deep in sweetly ripe, lush fruit flavour on the palate. Oak is again there but nicely harmonised. There’s a trace if bitterness on the aftertaste which adds to the cleansing effect of the finish, which I like. A stylish fruit-driven cabernet with ageing potential.

    92/100

  2. Toni Paterson

    2015 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – Toni Paterson (February 2018)

    Gorgeous wafting aromas. Stylish blackberry and dark cherry with choc-mint accents. The palate is brimming with mouthfuls of opulent black fruit. Great flavour. Juicy and delicious, soft and plush

    90/100

  3. John Fordham

    2015 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – John Fordham (January 2018)

    This extremely complementary blend featuring Canberra region fruit was judged one of NSW’s top wines in 2017. Winemaker Graeme Shaw continues to extract the finest qualities from these two premium varieties by continually varying each proportion. This varietal breakdown is near perfect.

  4. John Lewis

    2015 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – John Lewis (December 2017)

    This 2015 Canberra blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz was judged the best young red blend. It has 14.5 per cent alcohol, deep purple hues, herbal scents and intense ripe blackberry front-palate flavour. The middle palate has plum, mint, dark chocolate and savoury oak and the finish peppery oak.

    4.3 stars

  5. QWine

    2015 Estate Cabernet Shiraz – QWine (November 2017)

    Only the third time this blend has been made, others include 2004 and 2009. Winemaker Graeme Shaw says he tried a number of blends before he came to what he feels is a wine, “to be optimum balance of the richness and depth of the Cabernet with the elegance and spiciness of the Shiraz.”
    He’s hit the nail on the head.

    All fruit comes from the family’s Murrumbateman vineyard. The wine spent 22 months in French oak.

    Thrilling stuff for the old Cabernet Shiraz blend. Layers of dark fruit are partnered by savoury flecks. The mouth is generously filled with delicious complexity. Think blue fruits, grilled capsicum, juicy mulberries, well integrated oak, tilled black earth and a fine tannin to seal the deal. Great drinking with a get up and go vibe.

    Drink now to six years.
