Expert Reviews

Full crimson-purple; crammed to the rafters on the bouquet and palate alike; the fruit has some unexpected cherry and spice nuances cohabiting with more conventional blackberry, bramble and dark chocolate; the overall impact is very powerful and full-bodied, the aftertaste with some lift, probably from the alcohol. Rating 95 - Drink by 2027, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 15 Sep 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

The wine displays aromas of spicy Satsuma plum, black cherry and bramble with hints of vanilla bean, infused with black pepper and mocha notes.

Palate

The intense palate delivers dark chocolate, spicy mulberry, liquorice and blackberry notes, enhanced by cracked peppercorn, with hints of coconut and cedar. This rich powerful Shiraz has great backbone, firm balanced tannins, deft oak handling, subtle toast and great length of flavour.
