Cape D'Estaing `Admirals Reserve` Shiraz 2005 (1x 1.5L), Kangaroo Island

Description:

Original Home: The sea has a strong moderating effect on the climate. Temperatures rarely exceed 30°C. It is the hot north winds which usually cause very high temperatures in South Australia and, at our vineyard, these come straight off the sea and hence are much cooler than in the Barossa or McLaren Vale, for example.This absence of extreme high temperatures plays its part in preserving flavour compounds in the fruit, and because maximum colour development in the skins occurs at temperatures around 25°C, it also helps us to produce fruit with intense colour.

New Home:Only 45 minutes south of Adelaide in South Australia, McLaren Vale is home to sustainable winegrowing, world-class wines and culinary experiences.South Australia's viticultural origins began in McLaren Vale and region's Mediterranean climate continues to drive its wine style and diverse food culture.

Expert Reviews

93 Points. Robert Parker - The Wine Advocate. October 2006

A barrel sample of the 2005 Shiraz Admiral’s Reserve ratchets up the level of concentration significantly. An inky/purple color is accompanied by a fabulous creme de cassis-scented bouquet revealing notions of smoked meats, creosote, blackberries, and acacia flowers. This deep, powerful, rich, muscular Shiraz will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 10-15.
