Winemaker's Notes

The wine is amazingly deep in colour and still holding a purple hue which makes it look like a 3 year old wine. The nose is spicy, youthful and bright. It smells quite cool and fresh with the aroma dominated by blueberry and spice with a hint of tar. The palate is big, dense and youthful, possessing fresh, cool year acidity and great persistence. The flavour lasts for a full minute after swallowing.

Critical Acclaim

"Flirting with perfection, the blue/purple-colored 2002 Shiraz Reserve is a 300-case cuvee produced from 40-year-old vines that was aged in a combination of small and large oak. Along with a texture reminiscent of motor oil, this full-bodied, remarkably intense Shiraz possesses great purity and richness as well as a broad palate. As concentrated as Shiraz can get, it is also impeccably well-balanced, elegant, and bursting with personality/soul. It is the kind of wine that is hard to duplicate anywhere else in the world. It is good to see certain winemakers refuse to put the brakes on when producing something of this ilk. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016+."
