GOLD MEDAL | Adelaide Wine Show 2019
93 POINTS | Neil Goodwin
An iconic Australian Shiraz from one of the longest-standing players in the Barossa region. The exceptional old vines are the key behind this powerhouse wine, making it one of the finest shiraz releases in Australia. Opulent and mouth-filling now but this wine will unfold over the next 5 - 10 years.
The winery writes "A richly layered wine, brimming with notes of blood plums, mulberries and bitter chocolate. Undertones of cassis and complex dried spices combine with subtle oak, enriching the wines aromatic nose. Full bodied, plush and mouth filling with savoury, velvety tannins on the pallet. Balanced and complex, exerting multi layered concentrated flavours."
Neil Goodwin writes "A fine oak regime, extrapolated across brimstone, soaring floral scents, purple to blue fruit allusions and a long spicy tail. This is hedonistic, sure, but poised, fresh and delicious. The pH tang part of the equation."
