2015 Vintage: 94 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion 'Hand-picked, open-fermented, wild yeast, 8 days on skins, basket-pressed to French barriques (some new), matured for 18 months. Deep crimson-purple; a full-bodied shiraz in classic Barossa Valley mode; blackberry, plum, liquorice, warm spice and soft, plum tannins all add up to a totally hedonistic play.'
