Deze wijn gemaakt van shiraz en cabernet sauvignondruiven is erg wispelturig in smaak.Steeds vrij bitter in afdronk.De aroma's komen en gaan,maar blijven niet hangen in de mond.Bij de ene slok denk je,mmm lekker,en bij de volgende slaat dit helemaal om.Een enigma.
Beperkt houdbaar(2 jaar).Verkrijgbaar bij Aldi #bitter#wispelturig

Vinexus - Infinity of Wine Duitsland : As the King of all Gods, Amon-Ra is considered the most powerful figure in Egyptian mythology. The temple of Amon-Ra is recorded as the birthplace of commercial winemaking, having the first ever large scale vineyard grown specifically to make wine for the citizens of the temple. Tasting Note: Dense purple colour, the nose displays notes of blackberry, cherry, nutmeg and intense spice. The wine is voluptuous and yet seamlessly elegant. Supple tannins complement richness and viscosity. It is slightly more fruit driven than the 2004 Amon-Ra. Whereas the 2004 displayed purity and elegance at release, the 2005 will require a little more time to settle down in bottle. The tannin structure and sheer fruit weight of the wine will enable long-term cellaring from 12-18 years.The profound 2005 Shiraz Amon Ra is fashioned from a dry grown, 100- to 110 year-old vineyard, and spends 14 months in a combination of 100% new French and American barrels as well as 300-liter hogsheads. A saturated purple color is followed by scents of creme de cassis, incense, licorice, black raspberries, graphite, and sweet wood. It unfolds beautifully on the palate to reveal terrific richness, full-bodied power, great definition, and lovely elegance. This exquisite Shiraz is still young, but it possesses a degree of accessibility. It should age for two decades. It is a superb example of cutting edge winemaking being utilized on ancient Shiraz vines in the Barossa.Wine Advocate # 167,Oct 2006 Robert Parker 98)
