Cracka Review

The fruit for the Barossa Babe comes from vines that are over a century old. And what a babe she is, with shapely curves and a come hither nose. She’s a seductress too with lots of primary Shiraz fruit and hints of earth, subtle charry oak and a spicy edge. The palate is broad but balanced with many layers of attraction.

2015 RockBare Barossa Babe Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Good red-purple; the cork had a major crease line down one side, with wine traveling over the top of the cork, but there is such of volume of rich, supple black fruits, the wine may well rise above this challenge. It spent 24 months in new French oak; the tannins are ripe and velvety, and the picture of Babe on the back label is a portrait of the wine, every bit as much as of Babe.

Nice tarry and leathery aged characters layered with earthy fruit and sweet oak

Medium red-purple; better than many Barossa Valley Shirazs from this vintage; while the wine is distinctly savoury, it is not tough; oak has made a positive contribution without going over the top, and the overall structure is good.

Lots of life here, with bright, fruity aromas and lots of mouthwatering flavours. 3-5

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Slightly hazy colour, although the hue is good; the wine has the power and concentration the alcohol would suggest, but why needed in the '06 vintage? The alcohol and the cork suggest export to the US, but the back label image would have no chance of approval by the BATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms).

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Retains good hue, mainly crimson; has excellent intensity and length, the sheer depth of the black fruits carrying the alcohol.

WINESTATE (2004 Vintage) says
Intense, somewhat closed style that's a blend of sweet plum fruit and light cedary oak.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Very rich, full-bodied, sweet blackberry and dark chocolate fruit; just a little too sweet/confit/jammy, the vintage no doubt a contributing factor.
