Cracka Review

Wines like this don’t come about every day. Big, beautiful Barossa Shiraz – the kind of wine that you’d happily pay plenty for – with mouthfilling blackberry fruit and plenty of stuffing finishing bold and delicious. For the cork dorks out there, it is unirrigated Stonewell sub-region fruit from the brilliant 2006 vintage. The long and the short of it, though, is this is dammed good juice that demands drinking by the case. And Sir Halliday agrees bestowing a cheeky 93 Points and drinking well until 2021. Bottoms up!

Winemaker's Notes

In film and wine, the Final Cut is the pinnacle of achievement after a long labour of love. This quintessentially Australian blend of Shiraz (70%) with Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) displays a very dark color with some purple inflection, rich and complex aromas of violets, dark fruits and subtle smoky oak. The wine is enhanced by a generous and supple palate with lovely drying fine-grained tannins lending it seamlessness and class. This is our final cut for 2006! Drink now-2010 and onwards.

Final Cut Awards & Accolades

"Inky ruby. Powerfully scented, exotic bouquet of ripe dark berries, cherry cola, vanillin oak spices and smoky minerals. Plush and round, offering deep blackberry and cherry compote flavors and youthfully chewy tannins. Finishes with very good persistence and echoing tannins. A few years of bottle aging should flesh it out. These wines are made by Geoff Weaver, who spent almost two decades as winemaker at Hardy's." - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

Final Cut Wines Take Two Barossa Valley Shiraz Cabernet

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Has some textural affinities with Montage Shiraz, but the one-third cabernet and Stonewell origin of both components adds another dimension of flavour into blackberry and cassis, with touches of licorice and dark chocolate for good measure.
