Expert Reviews

94 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion.1 January 2018

98.5% shiraz, 1.5% viognier, matured in French oak (45% new) for 30 months. The colour is, if anything, deeper (though not brighter) than Descendant, the small amount of viognier blended, not co-fermented. The tannin structure makes its presence felt with the first sip, and continues through the length of the palate, but doesn't lead to tannin gridlock. The oak, too, is evident, but together with the tannins, provides a foil for the alcohol.
