2010 Eagles Rest 'Maluna' Shiraz
2010 has provided us with a wine of extraordinary concentration and depth. Intense dark berry fruit fill the nose with power and purity. Complex dark cherry and mineral is underpinned with a hint of dark chocolate. Ripe plum and dark cherry flavours dominate a palate with very fine- grained tannins giving an almost ethereal texture to the wine. Great Hunter elegance and a medium bodied structure flow into incredible length and persistence. This wine shows finesse and structure that will see it mature for 15 years plus into a great Hunter style Shiraz.
~~ Matured in French Oak for 18 months ~~
James Halliday Wine Companion 2017
"An elegant wine from a vintage with some challenges. The colour is a more than useful start, holding its hue very well; the savoury freshness is very regions, emphasised by notes of leather and earth set amongst black cherry and plum fruit, oak and tannins not intruding - Cellar up to 2029." - James Halliday
