SILVER MEDAL | NZIWS 2022
90 POINTS | Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
If ever there was a Barossa Shiraz that defined the term 'Over Achiever' this has to be it. The supercool squat bottles give you a clear signal that there is something special going on here and this opulent Aussie red ticks every other box. It's complex and classy enough to enhance a fine dining table - and gluggable enough to enjoy whenever the mood takes you. It really is the duck's nuts. If robust Aussie reds make you a happy camper, you'll never find a safer bet.
The winery writes "The wine displays more elegance and lift than previous vintages though the cooler Eden Valley fruit adds aromatic lift, interest, and freshness. This is a contemporary Barossa Shiraz having spent maturation time in older oak adding subtle vanilla and chocolate nuances. There’s softness on the finish while maintaining freshness and vibrancy. Pair with a classic beef and mushroom pie."
Classic Barossa Valley Shiraz
Excellent wine. Have just brought my 4th case.
