Tallowwood Creek Shiraz 2006

By | August 12, 2008

We had a game of Tinner’s Trail last night. If you’ve never played a game based on tin and copper mining in nineteenth century Cornwall then this is the one for you!
With it we had a Tallowwood Creek Shiraz 2006. It was dark and rich looking, and it smelled of cooked plums with spices. There was a high level of ripe tannins, with a full body and full-on alcohol. This is a big wine, filling the mouth with alcoholic warmth and a velvety tannin smoothness. The plum fruit has cinnamon spice added to it which perks it up.
This wine certainly packs a punch, it was perhaps a little too much for me, and would probably do better on a cold winter’s evening. Expect to pay £7-8 at Laithwaite’s wine.

    I have heard of the producer before but have not tried them before. I’m still looking for them! Thanks.

    Love the writing but do you think it may be time to pay a quick visit to EBay for a new digital camera?
