If you’re a fan of full-bodied Barossa Shiraz, then this might be the bargain you’ve been waiting for.
The Landhaus The Saint Shiraz 2013 is produced using fruit from Barossa Valley vineyards that are between 65-75 years old. It is a rich wine bursting with black cherry, exotic spices, and chocolate on the palate with hints of black pepper thrown in for good measure. It is one hell of a ‘mouth filler’ with a silky texture and fine tannins. An elegant and well-balanced wine with great complexity is the final result. You can read the full tasting notes here.
Gary Walsh of the Wine Front calls the 2012 vintage ‘saucy fun’ and hands over 92 points.
The 2013 vintage in the Barossa was very low yielding, which should result in this wine being more complex and concentrated in flavour that it’s predecessors. Langton’s vintage chart rates 2013 as 9/10, so it does sound promising.
James Halliday awards it 96 points and calls it ‘a smashing wine at $29.95, let alone $19.95’. I’d like to know what he thinks of this offer price then!
Vivino users give it 4 out of 5, and describe it as ‘big, bold and tasty’. One reviewer gave it 4.5 stars and did so because of it’s value, calling the wine ‘lovely’. So it seems to hit the spot.
There are a few places that stock this wine, with most selling it around the $19.99 mark, so we have used this as Our Real Price.
With this offer that price comes down to $16.99 a bottle, which is a reasonable saving off the Real Price,and a very decent saving off the RRP of $22. This offer presents good value for money, but we have seen this wine at the cheaper price of $15 previously. It’s probably only a 2.5 star offer at $17.
If you love a Barossa Shiraz, or you just want a saintly wine, this should fit the bill!
