Wine tasting notes

A rich deep purple colour. Enticing aromas of sweet blackcurrants, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. As the wine opens, aromas of black berry fruits and cassis, with a background hint of sweet oak, fill the nose. The palate is ripe and concentrated with a wall of very fine, drying tannins. The hallmark varietal black berry fruits fill the mouth evenly, with hints of subtle herb notes of clove and tomato leaf, adding interest and complexity. Shows long persistence of flavour.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2010) - 90 pts

Dec 2011. Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Hales Shiraz has a core of ripe black plums and black cherries over notes of licorice, tar and dark chocolate plus a whiff of cloves. Medium-full bodied with plenty of taut, muscular fruit in the mouth, it has crisp acid, grainy tannins and a long, pure finish. Drink this one now through 2018+.


Wine Spectator (2012) - 89 pts

Firm in texture, with restraint to the blackberry and pepper flavors, finishing with medium density. Best after 2017.–HS


James Halliday (2014) - 92 pts

Good colour; this is as smooth, supple and enticing as possible, with satin mouthfeel and fresh fruit in abundance. It is no wimp, with depth to its black and blue berry fruits and innate balance; oak is an incidental extra, the tannins in the same class, more a memory than a physical presence. Moderate alcohol is a triumph.


Wine Front (2014) - 91+ pts

Dark berries, toasted coconut, mint and new leather. Medium bodied, savoury and toasty, sizzled sage, forest berries, crisp acidity and a good amount of shaping fine grained tannin. Classic, you might say.
