A vibrant plum red colour, this wine has an elegant nose of spice, pepper and blackberries typical of Shiraz from this region. These flavours continue on the long, full palate where they are complimented by firm, fine tannins and spicy French oak characters. Very appealing to drink now but built to cellar with confidence for at least ten years.
"Healthy red-purple; a fragrant spicy red fruit bouquet is followed by a palate with a high level of tannin reminiscent of years gone by; needs more fruit depth to convincingly carry the tannins.
Australian Wine Companion
"A decent value in Aussie Shiraz, this is medium-bodied, rather restrained rendering of the grape, with dark fruit flavors and hints of coffee, smoke, molasses and cracked pepper. Tannins are firm, so give it another couple of years and drink 2013-2018."
