Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Before I go further, this is a very good wine. The question is, how much better it might have been with 1% less alcohol. Given the newly inserted cork, it must have spent two years in barrel. All this goes to define the wine, with its generous, but soft regional flavours; oak and tannins are good, and the wine will bring pleasure to many.

Adam needs no fig leaves to cover his muscley form. With quintessential Langhorne Creek stature, he's built around a frame of wide-boned oak and globby, blue-fruited flesh.

Deep in colour, with a super-ripe bouquet of liqueur-soaked black fruits, charry oak and fresh bitumen; the palate is very warm, rich and ripe, pushing the envelope in this regard; long, dense, chewy and full of fruitcake to conclude.

Purple-red; the bouquet is dominated by dark aromas of licorice, chocolate liqueur, blackberries and cherries; there is a noticeable red and black fruit quality to the palate, with a warm and plush quality that gives way to fine-grained tannins and toasty oak.

Often sells out within a few days of its release - it's become one of the chosen ones of Australian wine. We're not advocates of mint and eucalypt flavours, though of course Aussie reds are famous for them. In small doses, though, these flavours can add terrific lift, but it's very hard to keep them in small doses. Yet this wine manages it superbly. It tastes of rich plums, malt, mint and liquorice, and provides plenty of drinking pleasure.

Good colour; richly textured, with blackberry, plum and licorice fruit in a medium- to full-bodied frame; has a long and sustained palate with excellent balance; long (49 mm) cork.

Interest in this wine has skyrocketed in recent years. It has been known to sell out in a few days € This will be a ripper when it has been given time to mellow. It comes packed with dense, saturated notes of spearmint, chocolate and sawdust, and, while its components are sited separately from one another for now, in time this will all mesh magnificently. Top-notch Aussie shiraz.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Deep crimson hue; a very complex bouquet full of dense dark fruits, nice toasty oak and a touch of spice; medium- to full-bodied; the palate is lively, fresh, deep and complex; very long finish.

All chocolate, mint and plums.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Amazingly vivid purple-red; licorice, blackberry, plum, spice and pepper are all present in roughly equal portions on both bouquet and palate, and there are sufficient tannins to provide all the structure needed; oak is the hidden note.

Campbell Mattinson (2004 Vintage) says
This wine has garnered some high praise and while I love drinking it too, I'm not sure it's quite as good as the hype. That said, if you see some, grab it! 2004 RELEASE Even though it's super premium wine this is essentially ready for drinking now too. It's already showing the first signs of development, with leathery flavours giving a lovely mellowness to the heavier rush of kirsch and coffee-like flavour. What the wine is really about though is its ultra-smooth texture, which itself makes you want to suck on this wine for hours. This wine is as soft through the mouth as any wine you will ever come across. DRINK 2008-2013.

Ripe black fruits/blackberry/prune aromas joined by loads of bitter chocolate a la McLaren Vale on the palate; great finish and aftertaste; superb tannins.
