Assertive aromas, bursting with blackberry, bramble and white pepper. Glossy dark cherry, mulberry fruit with fresh acidity and fine tannins. A classy wine that brings to the fore the best attributes of McLaren Vale Shiraz.

While there are no half measures with the weight or shape of this wine, it has a touch of elegance running alongside its blackberry, blood plum and dark chocolate fruit; the tannins wait until the last moment to join forces with the oak to speak clearly of the long future ahead. Great value. Rating 94 - Drink by 2040, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUL/2015).
Deep garnet/purple, the 2014 Shiraz Angel's Share opens to aromas of baked blackberries, plums and blackcurrants with pepper and Provence herb hints plus a touch of tar. Full-bodied and showing good expression, it fills palate with black fruit and grainy tannins before finishing long and savory. Rating 90 - Drink by 2020, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (AUG/2015).
It’s heady in perfume from 2014; ripe berries, nougat oak, plum jam. Ample in the nose. Floods the palate with sticky-textured wine, dash of spice, prickle of tangy acidity. Long smooth ride, finishes a little fumey and bitter, but overall good, easy drinking, and satisfying in weight and generous flavour. Rating 90 - Drink by 2022, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au (DEC/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep dark red with a purple hue.
Vibrant notes of plum, blueberry and baking spices are given further lift and complexity by top notes of juniper and lavender.
This medium to full bodied Shiraz bursts onto the palate with energetic notes of plum, blueberry, lavender, violets and hints of licorice. Remaining quite reserved and almost savory in nature, the tannins are forceful yet beautifully folded into the fruit. Secondary notes of fresh earth and woody herbs round out with a long elegant palate.
