Burra Burra Lone Star Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Rob Geddes MW (2003 Vintage) says
This dry grown shiraz from Burra on the edge of viable viticulture adds to the already rich tapestry of South Australian shiraz with its savoury liquorice and blackberry fruit.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Old-fashioned, robust and leathery red whose earthy. meaty bouquet of exotic spices, dried herbs, cinnamon and cloves reveals pleasing red plum, cassis and red berry aromas. The palate is rich, quite concentrated and firm. There are hints of prune and currant, with slightly greenish notes beneath.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Intense and deep colour; black fruits, dark chocolate, lingering acid and tannins to close.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; complex black fruits, leather and spice aromas are followed by a medium-bodied, elegant style reflecting its relatively low alcohol (12°); the tannins are strictly controlled on a long finish.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium purple-red; a solid and ripe bouquet with a mix of plum, blackberry and cherry is followed by an opulent, ripe and rich palate with a core of black plum fruit, attractive oak and soft tannins; truly excellent for the vintage. Spent 18 months in new French oak.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium purple-red; the moderately intense bouquet is clean, with fresh cherry/red berry fruit, the palate supple, showing ripe plum, black cherry, soft, fine tannins and excellent oak. The first commercial release from the vineyard established by Stephen George's father near Burra (experimental vintages from '95 onwards).
