Boku Heim tasting Midweek tasting

Bernhard K. and I tasted 2 Wines in this weeks "Boku Heim tasting". It is very quiet in our student house as this and the next 2 weeks are holidays at BOKU University. Anyway, we´ve got loads to do as Bernhard has to write some papers and I am busy with exams.

1. Pinot Noir "Kreideberg" 2006 from Weingut Wagentristl - good/very good
pale red hue, still purple colored, chalky, Iod, spices and cinnamon on the nose, hints of oak, truffel scent, very smooth tannins, quite lingering but could do with a bit more punch.

2. Shiraz 2003 from Rust en Vrede Estate - good/very good - €24 (Weinplateau Wien)
deep dark red hue, spicy, vanilla, very ripe, hints of fruit in rum, bit meaty but not unpleasant, hints of burnt oak, very powerful on the palate (14,5 %abv), but quite balanced and lingering.
One of my favorite Shiraz form South Africa!
