Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A massive, full-bodied shiraz made from a single, small low-cropping vineyard yielding 200-250 dozen bottles a year, and headed for export markets relishing the layer upon layer of blackberry, licorice, plum and dark chocolate held in the grip of new French oak. It's a love it or leave it style, pushing the envelope to far extremes.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Medium to full purple-red; in a heavy, fat, squat bottle that can create logistical difficulties, and a newly inserted cork with stains down one side are off-putting. The wine is another thing again, marrying intense regional and varietal black fruits on an elegant, medium-bodied palate that finishes with excellent spicy tannins, part fruit, part oak. 250 dozen made.

Tyson Stelzer (2008 Vintage) says
A joint venture of a number of well known Clare wine heroes, this tiny volume cult sensation has never been more poised and refined than in 2008. It’s a pure, inky expression of Clare shiraz, with all the classic hallmarks of the region: liquorice, dense black plums, even a touch of bitumen. Dense and structured, it has a strong future in front of it.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Deep purple -crimson; a very concentrated and powerful full-bodied shiraz with blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice and mocha flavours, the tannins ripe; carries its alcohol; 280 cases made.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Strong blackberry, prune and licorice aromas and flavours, with a spicy, fine tannin finish. Surprisingly, manages to more or less conceal its alcohol; 200 dozen made.
