"Texture is wonderful, the finish just that bit breathy and warm. The wine is generally epic." Mike Bennie. The Wine Front
"Pours like quill ink. Dark chocolate, ripe plums, whiff of kirsch, forest berries and lavender, garam masala spice. Slippery, dense and concentrated, midnight dark berries, swish of fine, lacy tannin in a sheath around the lavish licks of dark fruit and exotic spice. So complex, rich and potent. Texture is wonderful, the finish just that bit breathy and warm. The wine is generally epic." Mike Bennie. The Wine Front
"Exotic Indian spice, floral, thyme and lavender, vanilla and toast. Blackberry nip, earth and toast, suede-like grip to tannin, black olive and ripe blackberry on a long firm finish. Feels very primary. Slight warmth though it, but gee it’s got some mojo." Gary Walsh. The Wine Front
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.
