The Saxenburg Shiraz Select 2009 has a beautifully perfumed nose of ripe blueberries, lavender and coconut shavings. Oak spice and a particular toastiness are apparent, but the oak is well-integrated and adds interest to the palate. The ripe fruit continues on a palate that has bright acidity and incredible tension. Notes of violets can also be picked up. This wine should evolve beautifully over time
