This is a full, rich wine with a spicy edge. Sourced from old vines, it’s a wine with enormous intensity, flavour and structure. It captures the essence of a great GSM combining luscious complex fruit and oak with incredible length.

Winery Tasting Notes


The appearance is deep and brooding with a vibrant crimson red colour and long legs coating the glass.


The bouquet is intense with lifted rose petal fragrance and anise spice behind blueberry and plum fruits. There’s pencil shavings and a graphite mineral character with a lively confectionary note.


The palate is full of dark cherry and ripe plum. It has nice chewy body with anise spice, violets and a gamey earthiness ahead of a warm, dry finish. There is a noticeable alcohol lift that enhances the smooth rich flavour and is supported by solid tannins giving texture and structure.

Food Matching

This wine is warm and friendly with a big robust heart and powerful structure. It makes a great match to prime Angus steak, slow roasted lamb and savory beef casseroles, without dominating the flavour. It has finesse and balance which brings out the best across a range of cuisine styles. Try it with Italian meatballs and pasta.

Cellaring Potential

This is a fine Barossa GSM which will deliver excellent drinking over the next decade of cellaring. From release it offers an intense flavour experience which will continue to develop and gain complexity as it matures in bottle. We highly recommend decanting before consuming.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

Pronounced violet and chocolate aromas, very pretty on the nose. Nice and lively acidity and grippy tannin, generous mouthfeel with raspberry and some tea leaf on the finish. Very nice.
