Indeed given a bit of air it has more than a touch of class to it. It's a wine blessed with fresh boysenberry and plum-like fruit flavour - it's not as black as a lot of Barossa shiraz and none the worse for it. Cedary smoky oak plays a dab hand too. Juicy length. Given a decant it satisfies nicely. 91+

Lithe and imposing this is a tall wine with refined texture and layered flavors of black cherry blackberry smoke and coffee which linger effectively on the polished finish. Drink now through 2019. -HS

Heady aromas of candied black and blue fruits cola and vanilla with cracked pepper and allspice adding complexity. Deeply pitched blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors are knit seamlessly and pick up a candied violet accent with air. Closes with powerful thrust and very good sweet persistence.

Deep garnet-purple in color the 2009 Shiraz gives notes of ripe blackberries dried mulberries chocolate and spice box with suggestions of eucalypt anise and vanilla. Full bodied and generously fruited in the mouth it gives a low to medium level of soft tannins crisp acid and a long finish. Drinking nicely now it should keep to 2019.-Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Deep colour; a ripe and black-fruited bouquet showing a touch of smoky oak and tar; the palate is surprisingly light on its feet with vibrant acidity giving the fruit an armchair ride long and toasty on the finish. -Ben...
