Colonial Estate ‘Emigre’ Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro 2005 (6000ml Imperial)

$579.00

94pts – Robert Parker

“There are 2000 cases of 2005 Emigre, a blend of six grape varieties sourced from a range of Barossa sites designed to reflect a“ palate ”of the Valley. The blocks were cropped at 1 ton of fruit per acre. The composition of the blend is 30% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Mourvedre, with the balance Carignan & Muscadelle. The wine was aged from 18-20 months in new French oak. It offers a complex aromatic array of smoky oak, damp earth, pencil lead, clove, pepper, cassis, & blueberry. Supple-textured & very intense, the wine exhibits spicy red & black fruits, with hints of mint & chocolate in the background. It is layered, opulent, & long while maintaining its elegant personality. Give it 5-7 years in the cellar and drink it through 2025. ” – Robert Parker
