Only the third vintage of this wine it is made from 14-year old vines that average 3 tons of fruit per acre. I am pleased to report that 2000 cases were produced. Typical of many of the great red wines represented by Dan Phillips it boasts an opaque purple color followed by spectacular aromatics (cassis pepper blackberry jam and tar) and viscous chewy-textured full-bodied highly-endowed flavors that coat the palate with glycerin extract and alcohol (14.5%). This superb extremely concentrated blockbuster Shiraz should drink well for 15-20 years.According to Dan Phillips this is one of Australia's hottest new wineries winning plaudits for their super-intense blockbuster-styled Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are planted in distinctive black clay soils and the yields are limited to three tons of fruit per acre.Imported by Dan Phillips' company - The Grateful Palate 601 Del Norte Blvd. Unit G Oxnard CA 93030; tel.
