  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • This Shiraz was fermented in an open fermenter with floating cap management with four cap turnovers per day. The wine was gently pressed at dryness and aged for 18 months in new French oak hogsheads.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Expensive and delicious expressions of fragrant spice celebrate the dark stylishly elegant Single Vineyard fruit. Dark berry conserve takes central stage on your palate and there are suggestions of a slight citrus note reminiscent of dehydrated blood oranges. There is seemingly endless dark velvety fruit entwined with spice which linger carried by elegant fine tannins.

    SAM KIM - WINE ORBIT


    Gorgeously rich and inviting, the bouquet shows black/blueberry, dark plum, vanilla and roasted hazelnut characters with nuances of game and violet. The palate is succulent and impressively concentrated, delivering plush texture and fleshy mouthfeel, leading to a lingering sumptuous finish.

    JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    From a single vineyard, open-fermented, matured in French hogsheads for 18 months. The bouquet and palate bear witness to the oak exposure, but it doesn't stifle the fruit. Obviously there is very good shiraz at the heart of the palate, and the (somewhat unexpected) result is a wine of great character and no little charm, the marriage between black fruits and cedar as good as it gets.

    TONI PATERSON MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    The mid-palate richness and the intense spice set this wine apart from the pack. Dark chocolate, boysenberry, liquorice, clove and rose are just some of the characters you will find. I enjoy the depth of flavour and the suppleness of the fruit

    CAMPBELL MATTINSON - THE WINE FRONT


    Single vineyard shiraz out of McLaren Vale. All French oak. A mouthful of sweet, berried fruit. It's all boysenberries and plums. It's simple, generous and luxurious. Smoky/cedary oak plays a role too, and a quality one, but it stands little chance in the face of the onslaught of fruit. Personally I find this too simple and too sweet but the quality of the fruit itself is excellent.

    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Deep, dark red/purple colour. The bouquet is lactic, oaky, and vanillan, the taste likewise and dense, rich and thick-textured, with some alcohol heat on the finish. It's not especially refined or elegant but has lots of presence.
