TASTING NOTES
Hand-picked, destemmed and crushed, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, matured in French oak (25% new) for 12 months. An attractive wine, easily approached, with all its components balanced and integrated; dark cherry and plum, soft tannins and clever use of oak all sit well.

It’s a perfect compromise between structure and power as the upfront black cherry and mocha characters robustly drive their way through a mouth-filling mid-palate, before pepper and subtle spices meet French oak and subdued tannins at the finish.

There’s enough natural acidity to suggest that despite its current drinkability, it will only improve over the next decade or so.

REVIEWS

92 Points Halliday Wine Companion

At $60 a bottle it’s not a quaffer, but undoubtedly one of the best Shiraz from the region that I have ever had. James Halliday
