($295) Inky violet with a bright rim. Explosive and utterly captivating on the nose, offering a range of aromas that encompasses red and darker berries, flowers, cigar box, minerals and sexy oak spices. Quite broad on the palate, and packing a real punch to its flavors of cassis, boysenberry, candied plum, bitter chocolate and fruitcake. Serious, harmonious tannins give plenty of structural support. This expands and grows even sweeter with aeration, finishing with outstanding persistence. Oak spices add sex appeal. A superb Grange.

100% Barossa Valley Shiraz. 50% Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), 50% Barossa Valley.Extremely dense and luminous to look at. A particularly warm summer produced this exotic cocktail. Rich, sweet with sufficient acidity, but this is decidedly embryonic with what is still a pretty dry finish. Forget it for a while.
