2014 Bullant Shiraz
Cracka Value Rating
A ripe, full bodied wine which has benefited from 15 months oak maturation. It shows an aroma reminiscent of plums and chocolate with a touch of earthy complexity.
The palate is rich and full of black-fruits and has a long soft finish.
A wine which could partner a cheese plate equally as well as a rare fillet steak. It is drinking well now but will age gracefully over the next 5 years.
While you’re enjoying this wine, spare a thought for our vineyard workers who once danced amongst the vines avoiding the menacing bull ants who resided there.

2014 Bullant Shiraz
Deep colour; combines fresh black fruits in abundance with contrasting quartz-like mineral highlights; the palate is medium-bodied unctuous and generous, fresh and focused Outstanding value for the price.2020
Australian Wine Companion, 2011
Vivid, deep crimson-purple; a rich, medium- to full-bodied shiraz replete with black fruits and dark chocolate; a slight kick on the finish (alcohol?) is eminently forgivable at this price; worth cellaring.Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010
Lively, estery wine with plenty of 'zing'. Nice spicy varietal fruit. Drying finish.Winestate 2009
This is made by the team at the ever-reliable Lake Breeze winery. Old-fashioned style and old-fashioned value. It's rich and smooth, liberally doused with creamy vanillin oak and fleshy and sweet through the finish. It doesn't have a great deal of length or complexity, but it's smooth and deep and satisfying.The Big Red Wine Book 2010/11 2010
Bright colour; plum and mulberry fruit with a splash of spice and mint; warm and rich on the palate, with ample levels of dark fruit. Value.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
Clear and bright crimson; fragrant fruit aromas replicated on the black cherry and raspberry flavours of the light-to medium-bodied palate; in typical regional fashion, has a pleasingly supple mouthfeel.Australian Wine Companion 2010 2009
Apparently these hardnut ants can take on funnelwebs! We just saw a home movie of them carrying a big spider away with them for supper – there are some awesome takeaway joints in Langhorne Creek! We suppose that this wine echoes the menacing ants that march around these vineyards in that it is forceful, dense, powerful and a small amount of spend can go a pretty long way. Good wine, nice label, just don’t fall asleep on a picnic in Langhorne Creek!Taste Food and Wine Guide 2009
