The Eagles Blood Shiraz is the ultimate expression from ancient Cambrian Earth to wine that displays spectacular colour, depth of flavour and balance. Made with a minimal approach using traditional methods and barreled in French and American Oak, it is a fine reflection of the terrior and the careful balance between viticulture and the environment.
2012 – In addition to this wine’s classic Heathcote characteristics, this wine exhibits native florals, blackberry, prune and clove. Cedar, brazil nut, butter and smoky vanillin characteristics, lingering chocolate, caramel and coffee on the palate with seamless acid and oak integration with velvety tannins and superior length delivers a spectacular wine.
2010 – This bright opaque wine leaps out of the glass and takes hold of your senses, wrapping you in a velvet blanket. An immediate bouquet of dark berries and plum drift from the glass, followed by nutmeg, molasses and dark cherry on the palate. Hints of spiced chocolate and fine dusty tannins finishing this wines complete varietal and regional characteristics.
2009 – “truly a benchmark example from a region renowned for this variety. Intensity, complexity, balance and length with a unique harmony and ethereal quality”. (Paul Moran)
2008 – This wine displays an intense nose and palate of dark berry fruits and mocha with hints of clove, pepper and mint, finishing with earthy dark chocolate and rich velvet tannins. This wine is long and plush with lasting body.
2007 – The 2007 Eagles Blood Shiraz displays dark berry fruits and mocha with hints of cloves, pepper and mint. This well balanced wine has an intense palate, finishing with rich velvety tannins. This wine will benefit from long term cellaring and is best decanted.
2004 – “Intense dark plum, blackberry, mocha and ironstone aromas leap from the glass. The palate is bold but not overblown, with dark berry and charcuterie flavours and a good lick of spicy oak. The mineral tannins are assertive but not tough.” – Gourmet Traveller / Qantas Inflight Guide to Wine.
