One of the best in the business when you’re talkin’ Barossa Shiraz. Big, powerful and grunty – this ain’t for the faint hearted but definitely for the old skool lover of Barossa red! Or as they call it – “vibrant, rich and full bodied with intense red berry fruits, ripe blackberries and black pepper.”
Named after the vineyard the grapes are picked from (which by the way boasts vines over a century old!) this is a Shiraz that has raised the bar of what we can expect from premium Shiraz from this part of the world.
The awards tally over the last decade or so says it all – 22 Gold medals, 48 Silvers and 5 Trophies! Chuck in a dozen 90+ Point reviews and you get the idea.
This is the latest 2019 release and, well, boy it’s some wine! Scoring 95/100 with Huon Hooke for The Real Review, it’s also one of the Top Ranking Barossa Shiraz from this vintage. Huon said “Very deep, dark, saturated red/purple with blackish depths which stain the glass. The bouquet is broodingly deep and mysterious, smoky-char and earth-bound characters, and black fruits galore, black olive and tapenade too. The palate has great depth and texture, the tannins fleshy and coating, but balanced. It has a big future if cellared. An outstanding value shiraz, very Barossa and very shiraz.”
You can confidently tuck this one away in your cellar for the next 10-12 years. That’s a long time to wait though, so grab a few and open them up along the way and watch her develop!
If you’re pairing with food here’s a tip – it’s a treat with an aged eye fillet or braised lamb shanks.
Damn, you're looking young for your age!
