Brick Kiln McLaren Vale Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
This single vineyard wine spent 21 months in American and French oak. Deep purple-crimson, it has remarkably complex flavours of an '11 wine, but no sign of body building on the medium-bodied palate; instead there is an array of blackberry fruit, dark chocolate and licorice-accented flavours, tannins and oak neatly judged.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep purple-crimson; it was matured for 21 months in American (85%) and French hogsheads; it is an impressive full-bodied wine showing the best of the vintage and the best of the region with a panoply of black fruits, licorice, spice, dark chocolate and plum cake, firm tannins giving the wine the structure it needs.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep, dense purple-crimson; produced from shiraz yielding 1 tonne per acre (hence the colour) and matured for 18 months in French and American hogsheads (40% new); the bouquet and palate show no dead fruit or hot alcohol characters, and while the oak is evident, it is integrated.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Deep colour; the first bottled on the bouquet with its dark chocolate and mocha cries McLaren Vale (and American and French oak) and nothing hereafter upsets the apple cart, the rich, ripe and opulent fruit flavours doing the hard yards.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Well made; the medium- to full-bodied palate has a range of blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate flavours supported by fine, ripe tannins and vanillin oak; carries its alcohol with ease.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Very deep, with a little grape shrivel evident; deep and dark, and quite warm-fruited; finishes a little short.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A solid, ripe, chewy style with black fruits and regional chocolate; slightly short, but should build with age.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
A voluptuous, rich array of dark chocolate and bright red plum and blackberry fruit; fruit-driven; minimal oak.
