Winemaker's Notes

Brooding fruit profile, black cherry, plum, chocolate and subtle minty herbal characters with strong support from savoury oak notes of malt, cedar, clove which will integrate with time to harmony. The fruit shines brighter on the palate with blackberry and plum, supported by quality savoury oak flavours of mocha and vanilla. The tannins are soft and the flavours deep and long creating a generosity, a sense of comfort, that is such a feature of this variety in our unique part of the world.

Critical Acclaim

"Deep crimson-purple; uses the Amarone technique pioneered by joe Grilli in Australia, with 20% of the grapes air-dried for eight weeks before being crushed; it worked for him and it works here, adding a dimension of richness to the blackcurrant fruit and creating a velvety texture."
94 Points

"Deep garnet-black in color, the 2010 G.A.M. Shiraz reveals evolving notes of prunes, dried mulberries and creme de cassis with suggestions of smoky bacon, dusty earth and dried sage. Very full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it provides tons of mature fruit and spice flavors with a savory undercurrent and is framed by medium-level powdery tannins. It finishes long and just a little hot."
92 Points

"Inky purple. Heady, smoke-accented aromas of black and blue fruit preserves, potpourri, olive and fruitcake. Offers an array of juicy dark fruit and spice flavors and picks up a note of mocha with aeration. Fleshy but focused, with excellent back-end power and subtle, slow-building tannins. Very suave and surprisingly approachable but has the depth and structure to age positively for at least the next decade."
92 Points

"A plush red, with generous flavors of smoky blackberry, carpaccio and pepper, finishing ripe and open-textured."
