    cracka review

    Dripping with show medals and critical acclaim this is very much an 'icon level' Australian Shiraz. Just calling it that is glossing over how approachable a wine it is - rich and ripe, yet also polished and well made. Top shelf Shiraz, no question about it.

    expert reviews

    James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
    The texture of this wine makes an instantaneous and exquisite impression, making the moderate alcohol seem even lower than it is. This is an old money aristocrat, elegantly unfurling layer after layer of red and black fruits, licorice and spice on the prodigiously long palate. The best Eileen since '71.

    winemaker's notes

    Youthful deep brooding dark colour, belying its age. Highly complex aromas of chocolate, meat, leather, black olive, fresh blueberry and persimmon flesh. Underlying spicy French oak and savoury, smoky notes add to this fragrant wine. A powerful dense wine exhibiting layers of texture and flavour resulting in a wine of great persistance and balance. Dark chocolate, plum and ripe blueberry sit in harmonious balance with subtle French oak and silky fine tannins.

    Food match: Rib eye steak.
