Deep purple-red in colour. Lifted notes of violets, dark berries and plum, enhanced by cedary-spicy French oak. Full bodies and tightly packed on the palate with an array of concentrated dark fruits. Succulent, balanced and long on the palate.
Svelte, sturdy, plump, you name it. There’s ample tannin here but the fruit sweeps through it. This is a ripping Barossa/Eden shiraz. As generous as it is refined; as neat as it is ribald. Blackberry, roasted plums, cloves, mint, dark chocolate and a rush of boysenberry. Both grunty and succulent. It’s a beauty. 95 Points – Campbell Mattinson, The Winefront
