Winemaker's Notes

Two of South Australia's leading viticulturists/winemakers are undoubtedly husband and wife Sarah and Sparky Marquis. Their goals are common sense ones of "creating fruit weight, velvety sensations, and harvesting on ripeness, not sugar readings." Perhaps their finest accomplishment has been to prove that high quality wines can be produced at a price point that thrills most wine consumers.

Critical Acclaim

"The enormously endowed, ostentatious, yet captivating 2002 Shiraz 9 is a sexy effort. There are 1,500 cases of this blockbuster. Its inky plum/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, smoked meats, and toasty American oak (from aging in 100% new American barrels). Opulent, viscous, and thick, this succulent Shiraz is meant to offer immediate appeal."
96 Points

"Ultraripe and concentrated, densely packed with black cherry, dried currant, eucalyptus and cedar flavors that crowd the finish with so much intensity that it needs time to sort them all out."
