Well, this just proves to me that I won't be buying much Aussie wines to age soon. I have not bought Aussie wine in years and this was my last bottle of it in my collection. I had the 04 last year and it was a great wine, not heavy, not sweet. Oh well. Great nose but the fruit has completely fallen out - mostly tannin and acidity left on the palate. Color: Medium to dark color, red edges Nose & Palate: Tar and flowers, blackberry, spicy pepper and earth...crumbles after an hour on decanter...

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
