Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 95

($70) Very dense purple-red color. Heady, fragrant, deeply spicy aromas of musky, brambly dark berries and plum complemented but not overwhelmed by oak tones of chocolate and smoked oyster. Really saturated with dark fruit flavor, with the wine fruit perfectly supported by suave new French oak and fine, astringent tannins. Exceptionally long on the finish. As supple and harmonious as it is opulent and assertive. Another step in the ongoing evolution of Barossa shiraz.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Lithe and appealing for its range of flavors, this fascinating wine has dark plum and berry at the core and mint, leather, peach-fuzz and exotic spice notes sneaking in around the edges. Texture is firm but not overly so. It all adds up to an aristocratic red, as the flavors sail on and on. 3,500 cases made.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
