Winemaker's Notes

Shimmering purple hues. The nose is youthful and fresh with a rush of stylish fruits - raspberry, Satsuma plum - to the fore. A cedary oak background is in balance with the cooler climate spices and earthy, meat complexities. The palate is defined, tight and focussed. Integrated, stylish oak fuses effortlessly with a compote of expressive, red-berried fruits. Fine, persistent tannins comfortably convey a long and lingering finish, signing off and providing closure for this medium-weight Bin 128 package.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous mouthful of fruit bursting with flavour; great texture and structure; potentially the best ever. "
94 Points

"Crisp, open-textured and beguiling for its beautifully proportioned blackberry, currant, plum and spice flavors, hinting at black pepper as the finish sails on enticingly. Best from 2011 through 2018. 13,000 cases imported."
91 Points

"The 2006 Bin 128 Coonawarra Shiraz is purple-colored with a nose of mineral, menthol, black pepper, and assorted black fruits. It exhibits some elegance, ripe fruit, and good balance leading to a silky, fruit-filled finish. Drink it from 2011 to 2018. "
90 Points

"Vivid ruby color. Ripe cherry, plum and blueberry on the nose. Suave, sweet dark berry flavors are framed by velvety tannins and pick up bitter chocolate and coffee qualities with air. Oak-spiced dark berry notes cling on the finish, which is broad, sappy and very persistent. Give this wine some air or a few more years in the cellar."
