Year after year Aberfeldy shiraz continues to deliver the best that Clare Valley has to offer. We ‘forgot’ a palette of Aberfeldy at the winery, and now must make room for 2013 vintage.
The 2012 Aberfeldy has vibrant magenta colour with aromatics of cherry, plum, dark berries and chocolate complemented by the oak derived characters of clove, nutmeg and vanilla. 
The palate is full bodied with dark berry conserve flavours and balanced oak, firm tannin and acidity. The wine has persistent length of sweet fruit and oak, with power, elegance and great finesse.
Halliday’s comment:
Excellent wine but oak tolerance is certainly required early on. Fortunately the fruit pops its heads through the clouds and, particularly given time to breathe, shines. Vanilla, toast, violets and chocolate with sweet-but-lively plum-drenched fruit pouring through. Swish, velvety tannin adds to the quality case.

95 Points Rob Geddes MW

“A very elegant wine. The polished seamless aromas show mocha, dark berry fruits, blackberry, and dark chocolate with polish and poise. The palate has the requisite fruit sweetness, dark fruit flavours and oak complexity, balance and fine tannins. The style is earnest and understated, and the polished texture less dependent on ripe swagger than many in the neighbourhood. The innate understanding shows in the refinement across aromas, palate, finish and ageability. Better after 2018. "
