Expert Reviews

Australian Financial Review, Tim White (Australia), 05 Dec 08 94 Points "Sweet and bright smelling berries, gets greenage-plummy in the glass. Mossy, woodsy smells, too. Fine fruit texture in the mouth, sweet succulent forest berries and an almost oatcake tasting sapidity. A mix of the rich and the vibrant wit well articulated tannin. Lots of fruit and complexity. "

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red - almost black.

Aroma

Fully ripened plummy, spicy Shiraz fruit with some blueberry and dark chocolate notes as well. These are all complimented nicely by a swirl of charry French oak somewhere in the mix. Displays a degree of opulence that we don’t often see in a Clare Shiraz.

Palate

The palate is all ripe cherries, plums and spice with a core of dark chocolate running through the mid palate, while a hit of fine, dry tannins on the finish adds length and structure to the soft, plush fruit.

Cellaring Potential

A richly flavoured wine that will be most attractive to Shiraz fans. No problem to drink this wine as a youngster, but as usual 4-7 years will see some evolution in the wine and repay those who care enough to stash some away in a cool, dark place.
