The Southern Flinders Ranges is a relatively new viticultural region, where Flinders Run has been making a splash with its powerful, opulent Shiraz. The 2007 is full bodied and lushly textured, its plum fruit gently wrapped in a layers of cedar and mocha. Drink it over the next 5-10 years.
This is pretty oaky stuff, loaded with toast and cedar aromas, but still showing some lush blueberry fruit underneath. It’s a wine that’s fleshed out by supple tannins, moderately high alcohol and drenched in eau de fût neuf, yet finds a precarious balance among those items. Probably best to drink now.
