Grant Burge Filsell Barossa Shiraz 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Ripe berries and spices on the nose

Juicy, dark fruit on the palate

Finishes with raspberry, currant, and a dose of black pepper

This wine is full-bodied, ripe, and peppery. It has some classic Barossa qualities, but is just an average wine. It doesn't come together extremely well like a top-end Shiraz.

I paid $20 for the bottle, and have since seen it priced as low as $15. Given that the price range is being stretched well into the six figure range for Barossa Shiraz, this wine seems fairly priced. Raise a glass!

The 2002 Grant Burge Filsell Shiraz is just as great. Please feel free to have a look at our tasting note here
