Tiny Amount 66 Cases
Princeland Watch Limestone Coast Shiraz 2015
Region: Limestone Coast, SA
Years can pass before we find what we want and for the Princeland the previous vintage was the 2012. Alas the 2015 will not last long either as the quality we wanted meant the quantity we found only amounts to 66 dozen.
Better though small hand picked amounts than dealing in mega tanker loads. To repeat what I have been saying: I do not deal in a single dimensional world where a wine is given a point score based on quality. That is a start but you must then assess the price you can buy the wine for and estimate what it will cost to get it into bottle and onto the market. That, as often stated is the art form of Glug or what we do as wine-merchants.
I think to get this quality will cost about double this Princeland price and perhaps more. The wines of the Limestone Coast can come from a very large area in the south-east of South Australia though this beauty is from the warmer northern region around Padthaway thus its rich and fat.
