Winemaker's Notes

99% Shiraz, 1% Viognier

A deep bloody velvet color with aromas of lively white pepper and warmed aniseed. The many layers of aromas continue to reveal more. On the palate, dark plums are driven by a richness of silky ripe tannins. All in harmony and well balanced. This wine can be enjoyed now or cellared for up to 20 years.

"Numbered for the year in which was planted. Shiraz is my most challenging, yet rewarding variety. The vines grow like crazy – producing tiny, flavour packed berries. I'm constantly trying to tame this wild child, yet am amazed by its power. No. 89 is the complete opposite to the general perception of Australian Shiraz. It's both powerful and refined and framed with fine grain tannins."- Philip Shaw

Critical Acclaim

"Abundant depth and concentration of flavour; blackberry, spice and just a hint of viognier lift to the aroma and flavour. "
91 Points

"Only contains 1% Viognier, so maybe the impression is subliminal, but there does seem to be a hint of apricot to this wine’s raspberry-blueberry fruit and cracked pepper. It’s medium-bodied, with firm acids but soft tannins on the finish. Drink now and over the next 8 years."

I bought this wine on sale for $20- yet I've still have much better wines for the price. It was very sharp and had a lot of residue in the bottom of the bottle- yuck.
