Expert review

One of the finest shirazes yet made in Australia, this is a landmark cool climate wine. Wild, musky and faintly meaty perfume of deep, lustrous black, blue and red berries lifted by profound floral scents reveals nuances of cedar and animal hide. Medium-bodied, it’s densely packed with pastille-like flavours of cassis, blackberries and dark plums, extending smooth and velvety down a tight-grained and slatey spine, building intensity towards a long, seamless finish of mineral and savoury qualities. Extraordinary. Smooth and generous but supremely elegant, youthful and harmonious. Very youthful.

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
