2005 Izway Bruce Barossa Valley shiraz


Busy afternoon. Busy salesman, new product. Tiny, tiny plastic cup. "Older vintage. 91 points. You could sell it for $30 or $40. New vintage retails for $80. We just picked it up."

Tasted.

Ooh. Good, good, good. A younger shiraz' stand-up-and-walk-down-your-throat tannic stiffness has softened into a gently spiced, gently rich little fruitbowl. Sweet, yes, but fruitbombs are my friends. 

If you can find it -- these people are so boutique they don't even maintain a website -- well, --- ooh.

A little more about Izway Wines, here.
