Tasting Notes 2008 Sorby Adams “The Thing” Eden Valley Shiraz The Thing is our top of the line Shiraz here at Sorby Adams. Sourced from our Home Vineyard high in the Eden Valley at 475 metres above sea level. Planted by Pastor Franz Julius Lehmann in 1932, the low-yielding, gnarled vines are some of the oldest in the region. Only our best barrels make their way into this classic, cool-climate Shiraz and the new 2008 release shows again, why the old-vine fruit of the Eden Valley is so highly sought after. Deep brick-red in the glass with opulent, rich aromas of macerated plums, crème de cassis, blackberry and wild cherry along with a splash of cranberry which opens up the aromatic profile beautifully. Hints of deep-set spice - clove, cinnamon, fennel, dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and creamy French oak. Superb fruit density and concentration on the palate with a beam of bright acidity making the wine appear quite light on its feet for such opulent fruit. Fruit flavours of blackberry, cassis, kirsch and plum all flow seamlessly across the palate supported by hints of baking spice, licorice, chocolate, violets and well-judged French oak. The finish is perfectly poised and shows a graceful line and fine balance between the rich berry fruit, supporting spice characters, bright acidity and ripe melt-in-the-mouth fine grained tannins. Long and lingering on the finish which trails off showing characters of dark and black berry fruits, baking spice and subtle French oak. Try this with Roast beef. Alcohol 14.5%
