"From 70yo vines, open-fermented with 30% whole bunches, matured in French oak (40% new). The wine has wonderful drive, taking focus and balance on board for the voyage, sailing through fields of purple and black fruits." 97pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
"Raspberry liqueur, sage and spice, toasty oak, ripe fruit, juicy and intense, blueberry and blackcurrant pastille, dense and firm tannin, rich and full. The flavour lingers. It looked much better after being open for a day. More to come." 95+pts - Gary Walsh - WineFront
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.
