2015 Paradise IV Dardel Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
Profoundly flavoured, gentle and savoury, this effortless young Rh“ne-inspired shiraz reveals a deep, heady and exotically spiced bouquet of dark berries, cherries and plums laced with scents of violets, black pepper, kaffir lime and fragrant, fine-grained oak1 Long and smooth, it glides effortlessly down the palate despite its intensity, delivering an exceptional depth of wild, brambly fruit and newish oak underpinned by pliant, powdery tannins, finishing with a persistent core of fruit and a mineral note1

The top tier of Doug Neal s Paradise IV project, this shiraz has plenty of complex, whole, bunchy, aromatic complexity on the nose, a fine, spicy sheen and a wealth of smoked charcuterie, licorice and black minerally notes. The palate s dense yet elegant, with really impressive poise and focus, and a solid serve of oak spice compliments the fruit nicely. Juicy plum stone finish. Plenty on offer here and certainly one to cellar for the best results.

Exceptionally, stylish, willowy and elegant, crafted in a style reminiscent of Cote-Rotie. Deep, faintly peppery aromas of dark cherries, blackberries, dark plums and fine-grained, deeply perfumed oak are lifted by scents of blue flowers, musk, charcuterie meats and Indian spices. Smooth and sensuous, its supple and beautifully measured palate of translucent fruit, spice and tightly knit oak is supported by fine, crunchy tannins, finishing very long and savoury, with lingering suggestions of mineral.

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
A sensual, Grand Cru experience from Geelong shiraz, and a remarkable expression of an Australian terroir. A heady, voluminous bouquet deeply layered with floral scents and a lustrous presence of small dark fruits, underbrush and cocoa, with assertive suggestions of mocha, musky spices and briar. Its unctuous, vibrant palate of dark, juicy fruit and fresh, fine-grained oak are underpinned by assertive, mouth-watering but fine tannins, and finish with meaty, earthy nuances and a near-perfect balance of soft acids.

A complex young shiraz that has a layer of toasty mocha oak across the nose for now: smells of charcuterie, bacon fat and sweet earth, with ripe plum and blackberry. The palate's supple and fleshy, with dense, fine tannins carrying liquorice and plum fruits in curvaceous shape, a fleshy middle palate and a savoury finish. Best in a few years.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Slightly deeper colour, although similar to Bates' Ford; once again, a highly lifted and fragrant bouquet, the palate with lovely mouthfeel and a long, fluid drive complexed by touches of spice and pepper.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Good red-purple; succulent black fruits, licorice and spice on entry, finishing with pleasantly earthy tannins; will develop very well.
