crowd-pleaser. Cellaring? drink over four years Food idea: braised beef. The Age 22/7/09
A bit of an old-fashioned Barossa Shiraz here with stacks of earthy dark plum fruit and lashings of vanillin oak. At the same time, it retains a silkysmooth elegance that’s sustained to a long finish. Great-value cellaring wine. Ray Jordan - West Australian 25th June 2009
