Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep colour, vivid purple hue; a thoroughly engaging combination of dark fruit, spice, savoury mineral complexity and floral perfume all shine on the bouquet; the palate is silky, concentrated and seductive, with fine-grained tannin and plush velvety fruit combining seamlessly with the well-handled oak; a long journey awaits.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Older, leathery style with slight vegetative character on the nose and a powerful palate with good fruit and a lot of wood. 5+

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
Plenty of sweet oak spice sitting across this small parcel of 40-year-old shiraz; smells of ripe, summer berry fruits, cherries and plums. The palate serves up medium to full-bodied tannins in a smooth, layered Pricession, carrying ripe plum and cherry flavour; some toasty oak to close. Impressive poise - will age superbly.

This has built some leathery complexity and carries plenty of spice as well - dark, dried plum fruits and black cherries below. The palate's sitting in neat balance, with richness, sweetly ripe tannins and plenty of blue-plum, cherry and spice flavour. Powdery fine finish.

White pepper coolness to the nose, with some toasty oak aromas. Long, weighty vanilla/cedar palate.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
A more reserved wine than the younger '07, this has some leafy bush aromas, dried plums, cassis, anise and tarry savoury Hunter character. The palate's smoothly honed and has plenty of dried dark-fruit flavour; quite eleganty balanced, with fine tannins and some smoky notes through the finish.
The Good Wine Guide 2011
WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Sweet fruit lift to the pretty, aromatic/violet nose. Attractive palate - good complexity of blue fruit and gentle tannins and crisp acidity.
