Expert Reviews

Rated 90-93 point by Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 2004

A barrel sample of the 2003 Shiraz (14% alcohol) exhibits notes of black fruits, flowers, and damp earth along with a dense, full-bodied, opulent style. This offering will not be particularly long-lived, but it possesses a pure flavor, good texture, and offers a considerable value.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour of black olives with purple complexions.

Palate

It fills-out the mouth in a rich, luxuriant swell of spice, blueberry, plum and fruit-cake. Remnant dark chocolate and cherry flavours are also apparent at the closure of a long-drawn, finely balanced palate.

Cellaring Potential

One to keep safe and cellar for ten to fifteen years, or swish now.

Food Matching

A great accompaniment with a favourite succulent cut of beef.
