2009 Arete Chatterbox Shiraz
Wine Rating 
 
91

The wine has been bottled early to preserve primary fruit characters of dark cherry and plum which is evident on the nose. The palate shows concentrated fruit with dark cherry the most evident, there is savoury spice and fine tannins in the mid to back palate and good length to finish.

As a wine it is fresh and vibrant but doesn't have the oak and richness that one might expect from Barossa Shiraz. This is a different wine and a good expression of unadulterated Barossa fruit that is seldom shown. It won't however be to everyone's liking, and is bound to change considerably over time.
