Orlando Centenary Hill Shiraz 2015
Centenary Hill has had a makeover – Jacobs Creek is gone and Orlando is back and it has delivered a classic expression of Barossa Shiraz, as you’d expect.
This is a crowd-pleasing Barossan from start to finish which is hearty, flavoursome and hard to put down. The wine is deeply coloured and flavoured with ripe mocha, mulberry and baked earth fruit aromas well supported by new toasty oak. It is then ripe and chewy with firm tannins, matched with layers of ripe, licorice scented fruit. The overriding impression is balance – all the pieces sit well together in a bold style. Yes it will age well, very well, and is a bit of a sleeper, but is also a great drink right now.
