Wine tasting notes

The full flavoured palate with plums, black cherries, rhubarb and strawberries, with liquorice and milk chocolate filling out the mid palate. The wine finishes with great balance and elegance, and is characterised by rich dark chocolate, roast nut, vibrant acidity and firm structural grape tannins. These tannins give the wine excellent length and will become richer and soften as the wine ages, and will reward those who can cellar this release. We also recommend decanting this wine up to two hours before savouring.

Expert reviews

James Halliday (2015) - 95 pts

Individual, barrel by barrel selection from the best of the vintage. The deep purple-crimson hue introduces a full-bodied shiraz of extreme complexity and power; the fruit flavours are uncompromisingly black, the tannins integral to the overall style and quality of the wine, oak also well in play. Demands respect, and, in particular, time. V Published 02 August 2016
