“The colour isn’t particularly deep, but the hue is bright. The wine, too, is fresher and more lively than those of yore. The flavours span blackberry, plum and cherry, the tannins ripe and balanced in a medium-bodied palate. Large oak vats and smaller French and American barrels were used in maturation.” Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM18567
"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
