James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Deep magenta; the bouquet offers an elegant array of red and black fruits, nestled alongside violets and licorice; the palate is medium-bodied and finely detailed, with fine-grained tannins, lacy fruit and a long and expansive, harmonious finish. At the elegant end of the McLaren Vale spectrum.

If it were possible to bottle the essence of McLaren Vale shiraz I imagine it would taste much like this, a classic and immaculately poised wine that personifies the region's black fruit spectrum of plums, liquorice and black olives. These are united with an impeccably textured platform of silky fine yet superbly supportive tannins. The linearity from nose through palate is unswervingly determined; the length decisive and enduring, a statement of impeccable craftsmanship and outstanding definition.

McLaren Vale's most sensitive winemaker, Michael Fragos, has gained the courage to harvest even earlier. A brittle shell of firm tannins, epic length, line and control make this the longest live wine in the House.

Savoury black and raspberry fruit with tar, anise, bitter chocolate and fresh tobacco; the palate is dense and powerful, with masses of chewy black fruits and tannins that demand to be taken seriously; the wine needs time and its raw power will be challenging for some, yet highly attractive to many.

It was only a matter of time before Michael Fragos unleashed single vineyard shiraz on the world, and what a release! Fragrant, honed, poised, pure, vibrant and long-lived, this is a wine of well-controlled breadth of dense black fruits which are pulled into a tightly-defined and structural finish.
