    Ich trinke diesen Wein doch schon einige Jahre. manche Jahrgänge sind Mittelmass, manche heben sich hervor. Der 2014 gehört definitiv zu den Penfolds Jahrgängen, die ohne einen Zweifel empfohlen werden können. Eher wuchtiger Wein, intensiv in de Nase wie auch im Gaumen. Sehr rund für einen 2 jährigen Wein. Wenig bis keine Tannine und kaum Restsäure. Passt ausgezeichnet zu Fleisch und gehaltvollen Speisen, da der Wein durch das geschmackliche Volumen sicher nicht zurücksteht.

    Australia likes to put its hand up for having invented the shiraz cabernet blend. Blending these two great varieties of fruit gives the best characteristics of both in a wine. Shiraz has a rich mid-palate, whilst Cabernet is strong up front in the mouth and on the finish, but dull on the mid-palate. This hole in the middle is filled by the Shiraz.
