Winemaker's Notes

"The sensational 2002 Shiraz (from 89-year-old vines) offers up scents of roasted meats, beef broth, blackberries, and cassis liqueur. Its texture, sumptuous depth, and incredible richness and purity blew me away. Despite its huge size, it possesses tremendous equilibrium and definition. Drink this classic South Australian Shiraz over the next 10-15 years. If you love the wines of Torbreck, you'll also find this wine totally compelling." (95-98 points) - Wine Advocate

Critical Acclaim

"The 2002 Shiraz was sourced from 89 year old vines and spent 30 months in 3-5 year French barriques. Very deep garnet in color, it gives intense aromas of dried plum and warm blackberries over notes of dusty earth, menthol, coffee, tree bark, black truffle, tobacco and licorice. Very full and concentrated in the mouth, it has medium-firm grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long, layered though slightly warm finish. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2018. "
