93 Points & 4th best 2018 Shiraz in the Barossa: Huon Hooke ‘The Real Review’
Bursting with blackcurrant and blueberries, this wine shows the typical characters found in the Western side of the Barossa- chocolate/mocha and black pepper, but with a surprising freshness to the wine. Frankincense and blackberries jump out of the glass, along with a slight leafiness, which comes from the whole bunch component in the wine. Soft and juicy on the palate, but with a backbone of tannin from the whole bunches that draws the wine across the palate giving it length and precision.
“Redolent Asian sauces and spices: hoisin and dark soy, with a plum sauce chaser. An instantly intriguing palate of plums and muscatels, chalky tannins and bright red cherry acidity. Fresh and modern. Should have a huge fan base”
