Cracka Review

“This is a wine for Emperors and Kings. It is tight and precise, and doesn’t need to speak: it is far too important. The fruit is intense and concentrated to a magnificent degree: the result of lowyield, low-irrigation vines in Australia’s best Shiraz region, the famous Barossa Valley. It has the very best tight-grained French oak to provide some ginger and spice, but the density of the fruit simply soaks that wood up. It reeks of compressed mulberries and blackberries, with that special illusion of sweetness that Chinese pickled olives have in abundance. So now, in its youth, the wine is refined, majestic and ungiving. With ten to twenty years in the cellar it will become a rare beauty. If opened now, it blooms with a few hours in the decanter. A great wine for savouring slowly over great food, it would go extremely well with boar or venison. Stunning. 94 points now, more as it matures.”

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Dense purple-red; curious back Jabel saying Barossa Valley in one place, SA vineyards in another; also 'fermented in new French and American oak barrels for ... 18 months ... a second term of maturation of up to two-year-old oak'. Semantics to one side, this is an undeniably luscious plum and blackberry full-bodied wine with soft languorous tannins, and the oak is integrated.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Slightly woody nose with a volatile lift, and lots of earthy/leathery complexity on the palate.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
A keeper. Smells smoky and dusty, with intense fruit characters and lovely depth of sweet fruit and toasty oak flavours underscored by lively tannins. 5+

WINESTATE (2004 Vintage) says
A big, hot wine showing an attractive light licorice edge to the dark red fruit nose and strong tannins supporting the rich, ripe fruit flavours.
