Jammy and cedar scents. Has vanilla, cedar, and tangy berry flavors.

This Shiraz is really good, and ready to drink even as an 08. I bet in another year it will be even better - although the tanins are already tame. A slight hint of spice helps to hold the berries and cocoa-like flavors together.

Dark and lush with a black fruit and light spice. Long finish and pleasant nose. Hard to beat for the price. Typical Shotfire, though one of the better years.

Well balanced, interesting. Tar and red fruit flavors. Recommend for wide range of meats and roasted poultry. A good value.

Fresh and tangy, with lively acidity set against juicy currant and guava flavors, lingering gently. Drink now through 2016.

The outstanding 2011 Shotfire Shiraz (aged 14–16 months in American and French hogsheads) delivers considerable value and flavor authority. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by notes of blackberries, black currants, licorice, graphite and subtle barbecue smoke. Rich, fleshy and dense, it is best consumed over the next 3–4 years.

This has always been a very good quality production from Thorn-Clarke. This 2011 vintage is dense and jammy, but also refined in structure and balance. Delicious. Serve with grilled lamb kabobs.

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase reife Himbeeren, Kirschen und Tabakblätter. Im Gaumen vollmundig und explosiv mit Aromen von getrockneten Aprikosen, karamellisierten Feigen und Marzipan kombiniert mit duftender Vanille und dezenter Kokosnuss.

Kräftige dunkelrote Farbe. In der Nase feines Zedernholz, Kirschen und Röstaromen. Im Gaumen vollmundig und fruchtig mit Noten von dunklen Beeren und Gewürzen, gut eingebundene Tanninen, exzellenter, langer Abgang.

The mid-weight palate is rich and mouth filling; finishing with fine-grained tannins and great length of the savoury fruit and oak.
