expert reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2015 Vintage) says
It’s definitely one for the whole bunch brigade. It might only make up 22% of the mix, but the influence is clear and relatively dangerous. Needless to say, it had me more or less swooning from the outset. Nuts, herbs, woodsmoke, strings of greenery – it’s all there. Of course, and all-importantly, there’s a fresh burst of black cherry and blackberry-like fruit flavour too; it has the style, but it also has the substance. Whether or not you think this wine takes things too far will depend on your view of the bunchy style. There’s a screw of dry, slightly bitter, tannin here too, compounding the wine’s in-your-face nature. Personally I think it’s a stand-out red, particularly after a stint in the decanter.

Huon Hooke (2015 Vintage) says
Smoky, plum, spice and earth aromas, clean and attractive - if savoury rather than fruity. The wine is full-bodied and rich, deep and muscular with ample tannin and grip. A big, robust mouthful of Shiraz. Lots of grip and guts here. Long-term ageing.

Wine Companion (2014 Vintage) says
From Eden Valley, Moppa and Stonewell, hand-picked, wild-fermented, 24% whole bunches, 18 months in French oak. This adds finesse and class to its Barossa Valley sibling. In one sense classic, in another avant garde. Pay your money, take your choice, either way the answer's top class.

winemaker's notes

Hand Picked | Wild Yeast | 22% Whole Bunch | Unfined | Unfiltered

A distinctly beautiful bright red colour leads this wine’s vibrant white pepper-led aromatic. Accompanying this you’ll find juicy red plum and clove that meld beautifully together. Flavours of newly ripened red plum, subtle cinnamon and clove along with amazingly fine tannins are delivered onto your palate making for an elegant presentation of Barossa Shiraz.

Fruit source: Stonewell, Eden Valley and Moppa.
