Expert Reviews

A wine that shows 15-year-old vines can produce excellent fruit. Open-fermented, with hand-plunging and pumping over, then basket-pressed before spending 20 months in new and used American and French oak; 500 dozen bottles made. It has a velvety, medium to full-bodied palate, with an intriguing mix of savoury and dark chocolate overtones to the well of blackberry and plum fruit, the tannin and oak management well judged. James Halliday, Rating 94, 25th July 2014

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 The Terroirs of the Barossa Ebeneezer District Shiraz displays a pronounced nose of creme de cassis, plum pudding and prunes with hints of dark chocolate, licorice and fertile loam. Full-bodied and richly fruited in the mouth, it has a medium level of velvety tannins and lively acid lending backbone support through the long finish. Drink it now to 2019+. Robert M. Parker, The Wine Advocate, May 2014, Rating 91

The palate is textured and layered, with the dark berry fruit aromas again coming to the fore. The palate has a long finish, complimented by defining oak tannins.
