FIVE STARS 99/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
VERY LIMITED STOCK
Flagship Eden Valley Shiraz that became the talk of the Australian wine industry after the 2012 release scored a 99/100 review from Robert Parker - the world's foremost wine critic. The 2016 is just the second release from this sensational winemaking team. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove release with deeply concentrated fruit characters and some funky elements from 50% whole bunch fermentation.
The stunning 100% pewter label centrepiece is embellished with a striking sculptured emboss and antique burnishing. It is a package that communicates prestige and premium on every level and that is exactly what is in the bottle. Very, very special.
Sam Kim writes "A compelling rendition offering richness with grace and poise. The immensely satisfying bouquet shows blackberry, tapenade, game, floral and spicy oak aromas, followed by a multi-layered palate exhibiting magnificent power and structure. Substantial and hedonistic, this is seamless, symphonic and immensely gratifying. At its best: now to 2041."
