Expert Reviews

Bright colour; developed mocha, blackberry, black olive, bitter chocolate and leather bouquet; the palate is dense and full of rich fruitcake flavours, with vibrant acidity providing zest on the finish.Rating 92 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2012

Earthy/savoury nose with nice fruit cake-like characters. Palate still young and lively, with juicy fruit flavours and very fine tannic backbone.4 Stars - Winestate Magazine (MAR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep earthen red, purple hue.

Aroma

Lifted aromas of bright, dark berry fruits.

Palate

A rich, mouthfilling palate of ripe fruit, concentrated flavour, firm but fine tannin with excellent length of flavour. Subtle, complimentary oak rounds out an intense and rewarding mouth feel.

Winemaking Note

2006 was an excellent vintage. Late winter and early spring rains gave healthy canopies with moderate to low yields. A warm to hot and dry summer meant the fruit harvested was ripe and flavour filled when picked. Matured for 18 months in half French, half American oak barriques, of which 25% were new. Bottle aged prior to release. Another release of an iconic Barossa Shiraz.
