From vineyards in the Eden and Barossa Valleys, the wine matured in mostly French oak. Has retained excellent crimson-purple; the bouquet is warm and inviting, with pepper, licorice and spice sprinkled on blackberry and plum fruit. It catches you by surprise once in the mouth as it drives its point home with maximum speed, fruit more than tannin at work.

95 points

James Halliday, Wine Companion

This Shiraz is sourced from 5 vineyards on the ‘floor’ of the Barossa Valley plus 3 in Eden Valley which includes one 110 year old parcel. It was bottled slightly earlier to preserve the primary attributes of the quality fruit.

This wine was aged in French and American oak and shows great primary, regional characters of plum, blackberry, anise and cedar oak. The palate is layered and plush, and the fruit tannin dominates the oak tannin. Medium to full bodied, the wine is long and comes to a clean finish with the fruit tannin providing a defined, but not abrupt end.
