  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

    From six-year old vines cropped at a mere 2.3 tons of fruit per acre, the brilliant 2001 Shiraz is a candidate for the finest wine ever made on Kangaroo Island. It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a complex perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, smoke, charcoal, and a hint of wood. Full-bodied as well as remarkably measured, elegant, and restrained for its power and mass, this brilliant achievement somehow walks the tightrope between excessive power and overly processed politeness. It combines intense flavor with tremendous finesse - an extremely difficult accomplishment. The good news continues as there are 2,500 cases of this brilliant Shiraz. It should drink well young yet evolve for 15+ years.

    Smooth in texture, aromatic with cherry, menthol and pepper, carrying through with solid fruit and spice that echoes on the finish. 1,800 cases made.

    Very nice aging on this bottle; I had this same wine about five years back. Plenty of earth and spice to go with the rich fruit. Drink up, as I think this has peaked.
