This wine has a deep black color with a magenta hue. Aromatically it offers vibrant notes of blueberry and dark cherry. A juicy, fleshy palate is supported by ripe cherry and blackberry fruit. This is delicately built with fine, lingering tannins - wrapped up in integrated, well seasoned oak.
Australian Wine CompanionVivid purple-crimson; a totally delicious wine with a spring in its step more frequently encountered in cool climate shiraz; its fruit flavours span blood plum, red cherry and mulberry, these complexed by spice and garden herbs, the tannins fine and supple. Great value.
Wine & SpiritsThis grows in a warm spot in a high-elevation vineyard otherwise planted to riesling. It's clean, fragrant and relatively light in weight; the purple plum fruit has a tart, almost malic acidity, creating a peppery crush of flavor. Serve it slightly chilled next summer.
Wine SpectatorLithe and lissome, this sleek style offers dark berry, tea leaf and spice flavors on a polished frame, lingering easily against nubby tannins.
The Wine AdvocateMedium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 The Lodge Hill Shiraz is scented of crushed mulberries, black cherries and plums, with nuances of cloves and lavender. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of juicy black fruit flavors supported by a medium level of rounded tannins and balancing acid, it finishes with good length.
