Pack contains 1 bottle each of the following:
Has the qualities that I see (and enjoy) as the mark of a special vintage: lighter footfall, more spice and savoury nuances, and a long finish that expands with a peacock’s tail flourish. The special bonus is a final surge of fresh red fruits. 133 dozen made. 14.5% alc, cork, drink to 2037. 97 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
Matured in French oak (30% new) for 20 months, 133 dozen made. It’s full-bodied, flush with black fruits and in normal Barossa Valley style. 96 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
Matured in French oak (30% new) for 20 months, 66 dozen made. Here the impact of the richness associated with Marananga cuts across the ’17 vintage mark. Thus it conforms to the longer term expectations of style, which is no bad thing. 95 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
Red ironstone soils sweep across the Barossa, including the Stockwell district. This is a very attractive medium-bodied wine with notes of spice and licorice studded in the blackberry and plum fruit, the tannins playing a gentle hand. 66 dozen made. 96 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
The vineyard is that of 6th generation grower Adrian Hoffman and its 70+yo vines. It is a very elegant medium-bodied wine that leaves the fresh fruits free to depart from mainstream Barossa Valley black spectrum and explore plum and red berry flavours. 66 dozen made. Drink to 2040. 97 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
The grapes were grown by Angelo de Fazio at his Nitschke Road Vineyard; the wine matured in French oak (50% new) for 22 months. Deep and such an intense crimson-purple, it stains the glass as it’s swirled. It is voluptuous and very full-bodied; the tannins submerged, as is the oak. 66 Dozen. Drink to 2048. 95 Points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2021
