Your worst cellaring disaster?
Opening any long held wine that is highly anticipated, but ends in tears when let down by its cork closure.
2010 Eden Hall Block 4 Shiraz – 94 points
Not only a single vineyard, not even a single block, but comes from selected rows of Block 4, and not bottled until Jan ’13. This strong crimson-purple colour introduces a wine full of fleshy red and black fruits, a sprinkle of spice, fully resolved tannins and quality oak. The balance is such that it can be enjoyed at any time over the next 20+ years. RRP $40, 2035. Reviewed by James Halliday.
