Poonawatta Estate The 1880 Shiraz 2012
An outstanding wine of real depth, poise and intensity, this has a striking freshness and savory edge to the nose with crushed rocks, dried spices, dark fruits, citrus, graphite, and some peppery nuances too. The palate has intensity and focus that makes for captivating wine. Assertive, linear tannins here, really fine yet strong. Full of energy and drenched in perfectly ripe dark fruit flavors. There's a juicy, energized finish. This will age very well; best from 2022. Score - 97. (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Feb. 5, 2015)
