This wine is a blend of old and new Shiraz vines scourced from the Barossa's Valley Floor,complementing the different flavours which are sourced from individual
vineyard's. The age of the vines range from 120, 70, 50
and younger vine parcels. They are hand selected from
low yielding, minimally irrigated vineyards with exceptional
soil and characteristics.
This wine is a classic example of honest traditional Barossa Shiraz. Ripe, rich plummy and dark cherry fruit with earthy tones and hints of spice, it displays fine toasty oak tannins resulting in a medium to full-bodied wine with an exquisite soft dry finish.
"Deep colour; medium-bodied, but is rich and generous in flavour, the tannins and oak supporting the perfectly ripened plum and blackberry fruit."
Australian Wine Companion
"Youthful purple color. Exotically perfumed, expansive bouquet of blackberry, Asian spices, dried flowers and smoky minerals. Sappy dark berry flavors show a liqueur-like quality but are enlivened by nervy minerality and firmed by silky tannins. An initially subtle vanilla element gains strength with air, adding sweetness to the long, juicy finish. Leaves a zesty, spicy quality behind."
International Wine Cellar
This was a delicious Shiraz, smooth, rich. It paired very well with a rack of lamb glazed with black bean, carmelized onions and lemon, accompanied by oven roasted veggies and Parmesan and lemon polenta.
Outstanding wine, excellent price/value. Complex, Long Finish.
A very rich, smooth enjoyable Aussie Shiraz. Great w/ribs.
Great wine for the price.
I shared this bottle with company, and it was a big hit.
Nice finish. Not acidic.
As you have probably noticed, I love the Australian reds, and am particularly partial to the Barossa Valley. This is an excellent example of the very best the Barossa Valley has to offer, and at the price, I can't help but suggest you buy several bottles if at all possible. Very fruity with more than a hint of spice, it has a full-bodied and earthy backbone. You'll enjoy this from start to fine, fine finish!
