Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
The 2010 vintage sees this wine in a more dynamic and upbeat mode, still sporting all the trademark regional richness, yet there s more focus and finesse. Blackberry and plum, some cola and game meats _ almost wonder if there s a splash of mataro here. The palate s tangy from the get-go, showing dark plum sarsaparilla and tarry black fruit depth. Tannins are muscular and composed. Really impressive wine _ lavish yet elegant.

Nick Stock (2009 Vintage) says
This is a very ripe and brooding take on the Barossa shiraz theme, with dark-plum and blackberry compote, plum-cake, spices and earthy aromas. The palate's into the chocolate and plum liqueur territory; oak makes more of an appearance here, adding vanilla flavour and a plum-stone finish - impressive weight and density. A blend of Eden Valley and Barossa Valley floor grapes.
