Warburg Estate Premium Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2009 Wine Review (NW)
Lavender, violet, and earth on the nose
Smooth and medium bodied on the palate
Chocolate covered cherries and some spice on the finish
The best way I can describe this wine is that it smells like soap. I guess that's okay sometimes, but in this case it just doesn't work. The aromas and flavors aren't integrated and the wine doesn't remind me of the Barossa Valley at all. I bought this in a mixed case and believe the price to be in the $10-15 range. Raise a glass to drinking 09's in 09 from the Southern Hemisphere- just not this one!
