"Good, deep colour; at 480 m, the Lodge Hill Vineyard is one of the highest in the Clare Valley, and the wine has more spicy/savoury characters than usual in the region; the medium- to full-bodied palate has good texture and structure to its black fruit flavours.
Australian Wine Companion
"The 2008 Lodge Hill Shiraz offers intense notes of warm blackberry, spearmint and licorice with an earthy undercurrent of loam, tar and tree bark. The rich, medium to full bodied palate is nicely balanced with crisp acidity and a medium level of gritty tannins, finishing long. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2016+. "
