2010 Gemtree Vineyards Uncut Shiraz CrackaWines James Halliday 95 Jeremy Oliver 91
  • Deep purple red in colour with black hues. Aromas of red cherry, cloves, violets, dark chocolate, sweet vanilla, black pepper and blueberries. A multi layered generous and complex wine. The dark chocolate and red berries flow richly onto the palate combining with complex savoury oak that paves the way for a seamless finish. Excellent balance of flavour, acid and tannin.

    Gemtree is biodynamically farmed and certified organic. It’s owned by the Buttery family, with the help of recent Chinese investment. The founders’ daughter Melissa is vineyard manager and her husband Mike Brown is winemaker. This wine is a classic example of the great buys that abound from the superb 2010 vintage. The colour is deep with black tinges and a purple rim; the aromas are of blackberry, dark plum and violets, with a lick of discreet toasty, savoury oak. There are spices galore throughout the wine. In the mouth, concentration is the key word. It’s a quite muscular wine of density, fleshy texture, drying tannins and a long finish. Drink now to 2025. 14.5 per cent alcohol.

    Food: all red meats, especially grilled and barbecued. Also hard cheeses such as parmesan, pecorino, Pyrenees brebis, comte and cheddar.

  • James Halliday says:

    Deep, dense purple-crimson; this is a notably intense and complex shiraz from the start of the bouquet through to the finish and aftertaste; spice, licorice, blackberry, blood plum and dark chocolate powder all have their say while leaving space and air, giving the wine finesse and elegance.

    Jeremy Oliver says:

    Long and even, this elegant, vibrant shiraz is a fine marriage of fruit and oak, and one of the best wines I have tasted under this label. Its sweet, peppery aromas of blackberries, raspberries, redcurrants and light cedar/ vanilla oak reveals a whiff of menthol. Juicy and sweetly fruited, it's long and supple, with intense flavours of small dark berries tightly knit with oak and fine tannins, finishing with freshness and balance.

    McLaren Vale produces legendary shiraz and this deserves its place for fruit quality tannins and flavours.
