Winemaker's Notes

Fragrantly scented, taughtly structured and finely poised – this femme fatale represents the more reserved face of the Barossa. Delicately portioned and beautifully balanced its fragrant notes of acacia petal, crème de cassis and parfait amour are supported by an underlying swath of Szechuan pepper, Guatemalan cocoa and damp limestone. Supple, lithe and without any hint of 'palate drag', its youthful ease shouldn't detract from the sea of promise it holds for the future

Critical Acclaim

"This prodigious wine showcases Barossa's ability to deliver big, mouthfilling flavors without any suggestion of heat or heaviness. Scents of stone fruit, pepper and red currants mark the nose, while the flavors take on a darker cast, heading toward black cherries and black olives. The tannins are supremely silky, but this graceful, feminine beauty should drink well through at least 2020."
98 Points

"Inky purple color. Highly expressive aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, smoke, vanilla and cocoa powder, with a sexy floral undertone. Juicy, finely etched dark berry flavors are shockingly lithe and focused, with fine-grained tannins adding support. Very rich wine, with strong finishing sweetness and a bite of racy minerality. Offers an impressive blend of power and vivacity."
94 Points

"The 2006 Shiraz (97%)-Viognier (3%) The Relic was also sourced from 98-year-old vines with yields of 0.5 tons per acre. It spent 24 months in seasoned French oak. Deep crimson-colored, it offers up a fragrant perfume of smoke, violets, Asian spices, black cherry, and wild blueberry. On the palate this medium-bodied, elegant Shiraz has a silky texture, luscious fruit, and impeccable balance. Give this very lengthy effort 2-3 years of additional cellaring and drink it from 2010 to 2018. "
93 Points

"Viognier takes the potent black-and-blue shiraz fruit and powers it with a zesty mineral lift. Despite its potent alcohol, the wine tastes schisty, tense and vibrant. For a mutton chop."
