2002 Amon-Ra, Unfiltered Shiraz

2002 Amon-Ra, Unfiltered Shiraz

I opened this wine June 12, 2017, fifteen, no, sixteen years after fermentation—southern hemisphere is a year ahead of us. Look at that cork! Perfect!!

In my opinion, this is one of the best wines that Australia shares with the rest of the world. Ten years ago the fruit and alcohol would still be the focal point. But this year? Just layered, soft tannins, plenty of bright blue fruit, vanilla, and allspice, with an amazing finish.

I really wish I had another two or three in my cellar. In my humble opinion, this wine has another five good years easy in the cellar. Awesome wine! Congratulations if you have some!!
