Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Good retention of crimson-purple hue; itÍs no surprise prior vintages of this wine should have twice won the trophy for Best Shiraz at the Limestone Coast Wine Show; it has abundant and generous plum and blackberry fruit, and oak and tannins to match.
Australian Wine Companion 2014 Edition 2013
WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Lifted spicy red fruit bouquet and sweet, simple, well-balanced, red berry palate.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
A rich wine smelling of herbs and eucalypt with a long well balanced palate, sweet oak and soft tannins.

WINESTATE (2007 Vintage) says
Moody nose! Lots of oak sitting on top of the fruit. More oak on the long, fleshy palate, with good varietal fruit pushing through.
WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Subdued, spicy nose and dry, savoury palate with nice acid, good tannins and the oak quite dominant.
James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Rich, intense blackberry and satsuma plum flavours on the velvety, rich and ripe palate; tannins and oak perfect balance. Trophy Limestone Coast Wine Show '07.
Australian Wine Companion 2009 2008
WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Rich, oak-driven nose - smells very chocolaty. Powerful palate with tarry/licorice flavours mixed with plums and berries.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Dense, deep purple-red; medium- to full-bodied, with layers of flavour; great structure and texture, with excellent tannins. Trophy Best Shiraz Limestone Coast Wine Show '06.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
WINESTATE (2004 Vintage) says
Intense, rich, sweet, smoky licorice/plum aromas and a very inviting, harmonious palate with heaps of life ahead. 3-5

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Firm, intense blackberry/black cherry fruit; still very tight, and showing brisk acidity. Needs time.
