“Super concentrated Blackwood Shiraz from a particular patch of dirt that seems to produce fruit of extraordinary intensity and power. It’s got a bit of alcohol but the balance and poise is such that it’s all so controlled and comfortable. Deep, earthy, dark black fruits on the nose and the palate with a liqueur chocolate richness. A wine with extended cellaring potential. Cellar 15 years.” - Ray Jordan, Wine Guide 2016
