Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Full purple-crimson; one of those Shiraz that combine generosity of pure varietal expression with elegance and length; spicy plum and black cherry fruit is gently laced with strands of spice and licorice, oak and tannins precisely pitched on the long finish.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep crimson-purple; a seductive wine from start to finish, the bouquet and palate both full of black cherry and plum fruit allied with quality, well-integrated and balanced oak, the medium- to full-bodied palate luscious yet fresh.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
Tash Mooney always harvests her fruit before it gets too ripe, so the heatwave never entered the equation here. Instead, expect a beautiful confluence of concentration, fresh acidity and poised tannins. This is a very complete Barossa shiraz with sweet front palate berry/plum fruits and a delightful violet perfume.
WINESTATE (2008 Vintage) says
Oak-driven nose underscored by some lovely blackberry fruit. Seamless, savoury palate with dense black olive and blackberry-like flavours with a hot finish. 3-5

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Deep, dark colour; a luscious wine devoid of dead or jammy fruit; likewise, the tannin and oak balance is perfect, doing no more than adding both flavour and texture complexity to the black fruit core.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Dense crimson; even more remarkably rich than Eight Uncles; potent black fruits and licorice; lip-smacking finish. Why, oh why, cork?

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
A lighter style, which makes a bright change to the deep, brooding Barossa shiraz fashion, it has lifted ripe dark cherry fruit and upbeat fresh plum-scented fragrance. A refreshing earlier-drinking style with impeccable, youthful structure and balance.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Developed, nutty nose and powerful palate with flavours of chocolate, dark cherries and oak derived characters.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Deep colour; rich, luscious blackberry and plum fruit; densely packed, but not extractive; good tannins and oak.
