Region
McLaren Vale - Halliday Vintage Rating 9/10
Vineyard
The fruit was sourced from a combination of vineyards including Malpas and Little Road.
Wine making notes
McLaren Vale’s maritime climate lends itself perfectly to producing world class Shiraz. The fruit was destemmed and fermented in a combination of stainless steel and open fermenters using selected yeast strains. The ferments remained on skins for a period of 8 days in order to keep the tannins soft and supple and the fruit bright and fresh. Post ferment the wine was pressed and allowed to undergo malolactic fermentation in tank. After MLF, the wine was racked to seasoned French and American oak hogsheads (300L) for a period of nine months. Matured in 2 year old hogsheads. American oak (70%) and French oak (30%).
Colour
Deep bright red with an attractive purple hue
Nose
Lifted aromas of red berry fruits, seductive spice and brooding oak
Palate
The purity of this Shiraz is shown in the freshness of the rich, dark berry flavours balanced with generous length and fine, silky tannins. It has a superb, luscious mouth feel and complexity demonstrating the class and development potential of this wine. Cellar potential of 8+ years.

Colour half ruby half garnet. The nose offers up spicy balsamic aromas backed by ripe cassis. Focused fruit overtones on the palate which is sanguine and incorporates a clean floral, herbal edge. Balance, density & length. Delicious sweetness on the finish. A successful, flavorful red wine.
Reviews
96 points – Rob Geddes MW  Black olive, black cherry aromas with gentle oak. The tannins are silky here giving this wine a velvet like texture matched to the red cherry fruits flavours and good length of fruit and tannins with an appealing berry fruit floral perfume to close.

95 points (5 Stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit  Stylish and complex, the engaging bouquet shows blackberry, spiced cherry, anise, olive and roasted nut aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that is wonderfully weighted and flavoursome. The wine offers terrific fruit intensity together with refined mouthfeel and chalky tannins, finishing long and sturdy. At its best: now to 2030.
 
95 points (5 Stars) – Leo Daly, Wine Matrix  When your choice of Aussie full bodied Shiraz is either big bold Barossa or silky smooth McLaren Vale and your presence is the latter, this beauty is for you. Attractive in the glass showing rich ruby red and concentrated purple. The palate delivers white pepper, spice and dark plum. There is a lot happening here and I was delighted to discover some lingering and soft grippy tannins to complete the symphony.
 
93 points (5 Stars) – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix  Aromas of mint, cassis, floral tones & red fruits, with complex cedary oak & sweet vanilla on the nose. The colours are enticing deep, dense red with purple tones. In the mouth you find soft tannins with layered fruits of red berries, dark plum, along with well balanced acid, leading to a complex soft long clean lingering finish. Enjoy now but will benefit from 5+ more years in the cellar.
 
91 points (4 Stars) – Huon Hooke, The Real Review  Medium to deep red colour with a mere trace of purple. The aromas are fruit-driven and plummy, spicy and somewhat 'cool', a perception reinforced by the elevated acidity. The wine is medium to full-bodied and quite intense, refined and bright, almost strident. Lingering finish. It has a touch of elegance and a sense of style.
