DESCRIPTION
  • This Shiraz is made from grapes selected from five vineyards in the Hilltops district around Young on the South Western Slopes of New South Wales.The 2017 vintage was punctuated by good rain at the right times with just the right amount of light and heat in between. Great colour again this year with a surge of rich black fruit through the aroma. There is plenty of ripe tannin driving the palate. Drink now or cellar with confidence for ten years or more.

    'I’ve liked a great many of the previous releases of this wine but this is my favourite of the lot. It’s a ripper. Balanced, well fruited, spice-laden, perfumed, floral and then sweetly exotic. It smells and tastes beautiful, and is so finely etched with tannin; it has everything exactly where you’d like it to be. I’d send a case of this straight into the pool room but I’d like my stash kept a lot closer to me than that and, besides, I don’t have a pool room anyway. Buy.'

    'This is completely saturated in aromas and flavors of red plums and mulberries. Cassis, too. A deep, rich palate with ripe and smooth tannins. Youthfully elemental for now. Drink or hold.'
    93 Points - James Suckling

    'Excellent dark crimson-purple; a savoury infused wine with wafts of prosciutto, smoked sausages, iodine, cherries and pips plus toastiness from the oak. Medium-bodied, slightly sinewy tannins. This needs more time to settle and will reward those who do so.'

    93 Points - Jane Faulkner, Halliday's Wine Companion

    'Medium to deep red/purple colour, with a reserved but spicy bouquet showing abundant herbs and spices. An elegant, medium to full-bodied shiraz with cool spiciness and lots of style. Fine grained, mild tannins and lovely balance. It drinks well already.'
