'It puts the stars within reach. It is simply gorgeous.' (James Halliday, 97/100)
'Time for a standing ovation. This is superb in its complexity, fruit power and persistence. It’s a meaty, clovey, spice-ridden shiraz, but the core is spread with dense plum, redcurrant, anise and violets. That meatiness though: it’s gorgeous. And when combined with wood smoke and peppercorns, it puts the stars within reach. It is simply gorgeous.' (James Halliday, 97/100)

A cooler vintage has bent this to a peppery and spicy zone with a very fragrant, sappy delivery of bright raspberries, red plums and blackberries. Oak bolsters the spicy direction of the fruit here. The palate has a succulent and mouthwateringly fresh core of red fruit with sleek and long, polished tannins. Red-cherry and plum finish.
Medium to deep colour, with a strong whole-bunch bouquet, very vegetal and undergrowth-like, the palate leanish and nervy, crisp and firm with some astringency and good intensity. It lingers on well and has a sinewy texture. Very spicy and bunchy. A very interesting style - a cool-climate shiraz with power and depth.
Absolutely brilliant nose that gives classic stemmy funk as well as rich black fruit, meat and smoke. The full package. Utterly delicious, and pushes all the Syrah buttons. That stemmy component is completely compelling.
