'There's not an ounce of fat anywhere on the palate, just power and drive.'
97 Points - James Halliday

  • Top Shiraz release from De Iuliis, it is sourced from a blend of the Talga Road Vineyards, Estate block and Stevens. This represents the finest fruit from the vintage - only a mere ten barrels -  it is then given the complete Rolls Royce treatment at the winery and during oak maturation.

    With only 250 cases made, this is a rare old hen. Secure the last ever cases now!

  • TASTING NOTES

    Aromas of red berry, earth, herb, saffron and black pepper lift open this Shiraz. The palate is medium to full in a juicy style with a ripe yet elegant core of red berry and cedary spice. It shows terrific balance with ripe tannins and a complex, layered finish. A seamless and elegant wine in an almost Burgundy style and one that will age beautifully in the medium term.

  • REVIEWS

    'Always limited to best-barrel selections from several sites to produce 250 dozen bottles. A precise rendition of the interaction between place and variety, the balance between fruit, oak and tannins is so perfect that it is hard to see where one finishes and the next starts. There's not an ounce of fat anywhere on the palate, just power and drive.'

    'Deepish purple/red colour, youthful looking and bright. The aroma is subtle but fresh and bright, while the palate is again subtle and fresh, soft and approachable, with mild tannins and a good degree of elegance. The wine is deliciously fine, elegant and subtle, with medium-weight and fine-grained tannins. A classy medium-bodied shiraz.'
