"Finely textured tannins and bright acidity carry a finish of impressive line, length and potential. Great value." 95pts - Tyson Stelzer - Wine Companion
"Fruit from 6 districts across the Barossa Valley, 10% whole bunches. Wild fermented, foot stomped and 88% matured in old French oak hogsheads, puncheons and a large vat. Unfined. An impressively full, vibrant purple hue heralds a carefully blended shiraz that unites the districts of the central Barossa Valley. Judicious deployment of whole bunches and seasoned French oak upholds a resolute focus on classy blackberry, black cherry and satsuma plum fruit, nuanced with black pepper and violets. Finely textured tannins and bright acidity carry a finish of impressive line, length and potential. Great value." 95pts - Tyson Stelzer - Wine Companion
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.
