With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
Enticing aromas of pepper, spices, dark berries and floral notes. The palate is medium-bodied with pure dark berry fruits and savoury undertones backed by fine tannins. Lovely presence in the front and mid palate, that leads to a juicy, bright finish. An undeniably delicious wine.

"It’s a substantial red wine with fruit – rather than oak – to the fore. It’s a pure expression of shiraz in a Barossa landscape. It tastes of coal and blackberry jam, campfire and cloves, but it’s that hearty hit of blackberried – tinged with raspberry – fruit that really characterises it. It's a faultless Shiraz, from all angles." Campbell Mattinson

Our 2016 Yakka Shiraz has a dark violet hue, with lifted aromas of raspberries and plum, anise and baking spices. The palate is plush, and tannins are silky smooth with well-integrated oak characters. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 10+ years cellaring.
Item Code: ITM23704
Aromas of lemon rind, with a waxy, lanolin note, underpinned by wet slate minerality and attractive kaffir and grassy hints. The palate has a lovely weight and viscosity with loads of lime and grapefruit with a grassy, herbal character, and a stony mineral note underneath. It's crisp and fresh with a taut acidity and linear focus through to the finish. Fresh and appealing.

A ball of concentration, from the black fruit flavours, chocolate, licorice and tar on the full-bodied palate to the integrated oak - 21 months in French and American oak (30% new) and yet it doesn't drag you down. Ample tannins, too, so this will reward the patient, yet with a suppleness that makes it approachable in its youth. 94p Halliday

"Great colour, was the first comment out of my mouth. Pale garnet with bronze edge. Lovely. Very savoury perfume hit with cherry juice and pomegranate. Shows clove and white pepper. Palate has this transparent wash of sour cherry fruit and a sheath of very fine, firm, chewy tannins. Ethereal but tightly wound. Very lovely feel here, a very good wine indeed." Mike Bennie
