Australian wine lovers have described the drop as & # 39; rich and lush & # 39 ;, with & # 39; exquisite flavors & # 39 ;, & # 39; smooth flavor explosion & # 39; and a & # 39; excellent finish & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I shared this bottle with some hard red drinkers at dinner and they were absolutely astonished at the quality and finish of this wine, & # 39; a customer said.
Another said: & # 39; There is dark fruit, raspberry, blackberry, plum, black pepper and herbs with a soft touch of oak. Taste: decanted: the wine really impresses the palate. It shows a good balance between fruit, tannin and oak. & # 39;
And one said: & # 39; This is a fantastic shiraz – incredibly nice mouthfeel with an extraordinary balance of fruit and spices. & # 39;
The flavors of the wine have a & # 39; concentrated spicy, peppery aroma & # 39; and are described as & # 39; opulent & # 39;
The dry-grown Shiraz has been tamed for over two years in a combination of French and American oak and has a & # 39; concentrated spicy, peppery aroma & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This is phenomenal, so accurate and concentrated with so many details and power & # 39 ;, is the description.
& # 39; Named after the Wild Witch vineyard in the hills above Lyndoch, this Shiraz is not for the faint of heart.
& # 39; Traditional winemaking techniques ensure that this wine is produced with optimum quality. Enjoy now or bottle age up to eight years. & # 39;

Earlier this year, Kellermeister & # 39; s Wild Witch Shiraz was voted the best in the world by a jury of 11 Masters of Wine, a Master Sommelier, leading retail buyers and senior sommeliers from London's sophisticated food world.
Winemaker and owner Mark Pearce said in May that he & # 39; in the clouds & # 39; was after his red bottle had earned his place on the world map.
& # 39; Such a strong show on the international stage is great for our state, our beautiful Barossa region and for Kellermeister. We are very happy, & # 39; said Mr. Pearce Barossa Herald.
& # 39; For Wild Witch Shiraz to be wine of the year to be judged at such a prestigious international event is a huge achievement for Kellermeister. & # 39;
This is not the first time the wine has received a prize. Last year the drop brought home two gold medals at the prestigious Syrah du Monde wine competition in France, where it was named the best Shiraz producer in Australia.
