Varietally expressive with ample plum and blackberry fruits, there is a warm earth and spicy savouriness that immediately appeals with a backbone of fine, opulent tannins and a rich, persistent finish

Serve with tender lamb shanks in a hearty tomato gravy with creamy mash

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2012) - 90 pts

Feb 2015 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz puts forth youthfully subdued notes of red and black currants, mulberries and blackberries with hints of black peppercorns, tree bark and bacon. Medium-bodied, it gives an elegant expression of this grape with earthy nuances coming through in the long, velvety finish.


JancisRobinson.com (2006) - 17 pts

Tasted May 2010 - Spices, confident tannins and a powerful linear fruit and warm on the finish. Monolithic. (RH)


Wine Spectator (2012) - 88 pts

Appealing raspberry and cherry flavors have a plush profile and plenty of herb and brambly notes, dipping into black tea and smoke on the finish, lingering nicely


James Halliday (2012) - 92 pts

Estate-grown and bottled. A wine that creeps up on you, growing each time it is retasted, in particular the plum and blackberry fruits; the tannins, too, are fine, rather than rustic. All in all, a good reflection of a top vintage.


Wine Front (2012) - 91 pts

It’s pretty much what you expect of a Tahbilk Shiraz. It’s decidedly and unambiguously minty – almost peppermint here – with a little chocolate biscuit, black fruit, Spanish black olives , salt beef and nougat oak. Medium bodied, deeply seated fleshy tannin, well bedded acidity, ample fruit and a finish of good length and persistence – all choc-mint slice, with a suggestion of leather to come. Good release.
