Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Robert Parker, Jr. #173
Purple-colored, the wine delivers an expressive nose of pain grille, pepper, spice box, mocha, blueberry, and blackberry. Velvety-textured, layered, and sweet on the palate, it has excellent concentration, structure, and balance.

90 pts Stephen Tanzer 2007
Inky violet. Smoky blackberry and cherry preserve aromas are brightened by cracked pepper and dried violet. Round and sweet, offering deep but precise dark fruit compote flavors, supple tannins and a late-arriving floral pastille quality. No excess weight here. Finishes firm, with excellent focus and cling.

Winemaker Notes

This Shiraz was sourced from the McLaren Vale region in South Australia. The wine was crushed, destemmed, inoculated with yeast then underwent primary ferment in vinimatics and static fermenters with manual pump over every 6 hours. Upon completion of primary ferment, the wine was then pressed and racked to new and 1 year old French and American oak for 12 months for MLF fermentation and maturation.
