The Winner's Tank Shiraz the Winner's Tank 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Shiraz grapes for this wine were harvested from David and Cathy Knight’s estate vineyard in Langhorne Creek. Shiraz from Langhorne Creek generally suits this style of wine well as Shiraz fruit from the region has no problem reaching this level of ripeness and displaying ripe berry characters. Furthermore Langhorne Creek Shiraz characteristically has a soft tannin structure that contributes to mouthfeel and early drinkablity.

One of the top values in my Australian tastings, this 2004 Shiraz is a new venture between Kaesler Vineyard's winemaker, Reid Bosward, and the owners of Winner's Tank, David and Kathy Knight. Given minimal aging in French oak, it offers an opaque purple color as well as exuberant, concentrated blackberry and cassis aromas revealing a touch of acacia flowers. Full-bodied, opulently-textured, and loaded, I served this cuvee blind to guests who were convinced it was a $50 bottle of wine. Drink this big, black, Shiraz baby over the next 2-3 years to take advantage of its exuberant fruit.

Kaesler's winemaker, Reid Bosward, is a consulting winemaker for David Knight, and together they have created one of the world's great dry red wine bargains. Aged ten months in neutral French wood, this 100% Shiraz tips the scales at 15.5% alcohol. It is a sexy, delicious "winner" boasting amazing opulence, purity, and richness. A true southern Australian fruit bomb - and proud of it, it is the kind of wine that simply does not exist anywhere else in the world. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years.

Dark beet red in the glass, with a nose that fills the room with aromas of delicious ripe fruits. A full, soft, sensual mouthfeel and long lasting finish. You will absolutely "win" friends and influence those with good taste when you share this spectacular Shiraz.

A perennial Best Buy, Winnerrsquo;s Tankrsquo;s 2008 Shiraz is a glass-coating opaque purple. It exhibits an excellent nose of violets, incense, blueberry, and blackberry. Layered on the palate with succulent flavors, this smooth-textured, lengthy effort will offer pleasure over the next 4ndash;5 years.

The 2006 Winner's Tank Shiraz is a perennial Best Buy. It spent 9 months in tank with French oak staves. Purple-colored, it has a wonderfully expressive perfume of plum, black cherry, and blueberry compote. This leads to a full-bodied, seamless, rich wine with a long, pure finish. This is an ideal, everyday wine worth buying by the case. It is an awesome value.

Classic Australian style - jammy, juicy and bursting with flavors! This intensely rich red screams "Drink me!" Jam packed with pomegranate, cracked pepper and wild berries, this shiraz is definitely a "winner."
