Australian Wine Review - Véronique Foundation Shiraz 2012

A new name to me and very sharply priced. Sourced from vineyards in Greenock and Eden Valley, this spent 20 months in French and American oak with just 570 dozen produced. Gee it's impressively full flavoured too, perhaps verging on overripeness with a nose and palate heavy with the sort of boozy, choc bullet ultra concentration (low yields my guess) and sweet coffed oak. For many other Greenock sourced wines you'd expect to pay double this price, making the $22 ultra impressive. Full, decadent and heady, full tilt Barossan Shiraz. 17.5/20, 91/100
