Viking 'Grand' Shiraz 2004


Colour still robust, showing medium ruby with a tight garnet rim. Great fruit, drying out slowly by now. With some liveliness, Viking Grand Shiraz 2004 is with black fruits, liquorice and earth; it demands patience. Silky on palate by now. Leave it to open up more.

Success derives from the stunning site of 50-year-old dry-grown vines. The wine have good age worthiness due to the power of its fruit and high alcohol. This wine is the result of its owners (Tord & Charmaine Soderstrom) dedication to producing a top quality wine out of passion. Before them purchasing the property in September 1993, the Shiraz was purchased by Penfolds for incorporating into its world famous "Grange". Hence, it is of excellent value.

Scores are good. The best is 93pts from James Halliday "Deep colour; immensely powerful and concentrated, awash with black fruits, spice and dark chocolate, which have in turn consumed the oak; 50-year-old dry-grown vines." - James Halliday
