"It goes long and the tannin grip is firm yet fine whilst a hint of mint lingers and refreshes. Serious value here." Stuart Knox.

More Information

Includes 10% cabernet sauvignon and 3% viognier; small open-top fermenters, wild yeast, 2-week ferment; matured on fine lees, matured 10 months in French barriques, puncheons and demi-muids (5% new). A medium-bodied blend of cherry, plum and blackberry fruits, complexed by ripe though savoury tannins. Excellent balance.  Rating: 94 Points. James Halliday.  Halliday Wine Companion, 

Deeply-tinted ruby-red colour. The nose lifts with a mix of blue and purple berries, sage and beef stock. Medium to full-bodied with dark fruits, beef stock and earth complexities bring lots of character. There's a brightness of acidity which lifts and disguises the real power built into this wine. It goes long and the tannin grip is firm yet fine whilst a hint of mint lingers and refreshes. Serious value here.  Rating: 93 Points.  Stuart Knox. The Real Review.


 

Where this wine comes from - Barossa Valley

The Barossa Valley is Australia’s best-known wine region and there’s a good reason why. The wines certainly live up to their international reputation, particularly Barossa Shiraz. With long, warm summers, the region produces full-bodied styles with power and panache. The reds are rich and luscious in their youth with dark-berried flavours, fruit intensity and fine-grained tannins, which mature gracefully with time in the cellar. But there’s more to the region than Shiraz. Grenache and Mourvèdre do more than play a supporting role in GSM blends, they’re standing on their own two feet as single varietal wines. And with a new school of winemakers at the helm, the region is in good hands for a long and healthy future.
