The estate’s flagship cuvee is the virtually perfect 2003 Run Rig. Made from 8 separate Barossa vineyards (ranging in age from 94 to 158 years) it is primarily Shiraz with 4-5% co-fermented Viognier included in the blend. The wine was aged in French oak of which 60% is new. The sensational inky/purple-tinged 2003 exhibits a stunningly sweet nose of blackberries blueberries litchi nuts smoked meats and a hint of apricots. Elegant yet super-powerful rich concentrated and long it is a tour de force in winemaking as well as a modern classic example of Barossa Shiraz. It should drink well for 20-25 years.
