Wine making notes
Barossa Valley has a global reputation for producing some of the world's greatest Shiraz.  Sourced from a single vineyard own rootstock site in Light Pass in the heart of the Barossa Valley.  Open fermenters used with cultured yeast added one day following destemming.  Cold soaked for one day followed by seven days on skins during ferment.  Matured in a combination of 10% new American oak and older French oak for 12 months.  The Artisan Reserve Barossa Valley Shiraz 2018 is an extraordinary example of how exceptional Barossa and Shiraz can be. 
Colour
Deep red with a vibrant purple hue.
Nose
Alluring and lifted aromas of blackcurrant, plums, vanilla and oaky spices.
Palate
The palate is full bodied, rich and complex with a classy array of pure berry fruit characters making this a complete wine. This is a powerful wine delivered in a silky smooth textured package. Cellar potential of 10+ years.

Reviews
96 points (5 stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  Deep red/purple in the glass, the nose delights with violet and floral notes. As a 2018 vintage Barossa shiraz, expecting a bold style it surprised. The fruit was evident - plum, spice and white pepper and the stealth winemaking complimented the old and new oak together with a touch of MLF. The palate is full bodied and layered with a sweet balance. The finish was evident in the silky smooth delivery package. Enjoy it now, however it will be super delightful in 6 years.
 
95 points (5 stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Gorgeously fruited and sweetly perfumed, the wine shows Black Doris plum, cranberry, vanilla and cedar characters on the nose with a touch of spice complexity. It is wonderfully weighted and concentrated on the palate, offering terrific fruit purity and plush texture, backed by loads of silky tannins. At its best: 2020 to 2030.
 
94 points (4 stars) – Huon Hooke, The Real Review  Deep red/purple youthful colour, intense and bright. The bouquet is floral and blueberry-like, with violet-like notes and a soft, quite elegant palate with gentle, well-groomed tannins. There's a core of sweet fruit in the centre and the wine is long and harmonious with lovely plush, silken tannins. Oak is subtle; superbly handled. There are spicy and herbal notes throughout, and the ripeness is spot-on. Excellent wine. Drink 2019 to 2039
 
94 points – Gourmet Traveller Wine, Dec 2019 / Jan 2020 – Top New Release Australian Reds  Deep, dark, bright colour and a similarly fresh bouquet resonant with blueberry, plum and violet/floral nuances. It has a strong core of sweet fruit and an elegant profile, with well-groomed tannins. Long, silky textured and harmonious. Cellar potential 20 years.
