Produced as usual from the 20 Rows block at Langhorne Creek, it is dark and full of spicy, berry aromas with mouth filling flavor. Despite its size and generosity, it also maintains lovely balance which stands it in good stead for the long term (... like a marathon runner compared to a sprinter perhaps... both strong, one much more immediately impressive, the other gaining your respect with experience... this Shiraz displays a little of each we believe).
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Reserve Shiraz reveals intense notes of crushed blackberries and black cherries with underlying wild blueberry, aniseed, chocolate box and Szechuan pepper hints. With a wonderful vibrancy to the fruit in the full-bodied and concentrated mouth, it displays a harmonious interplay of firm, rounded tannins and well-balanced acidity before finishing long. Drink it now to 2024+."
The Wine Advocate
"Dark, deep and spicy, this harmonious wine drips with cherry, black currant and tar flavors on a highly polished structure, playing against a hint of mint as the finish persists. Drink now through 2020."
