This full bodied Shiraz is generous in flavour with notes of savoury black olive complemented by brooding dark berry fruit and savoury spices. The palate is elegantly balanced and textural with layers of fine tannins providing strong backbone. Great length with flavours of chocolate, dark cherry and plums.
Awards and Accolades
94 Points - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion "Dense, opaque purple-crimson; makes no bones about its full-bodied power; 'don't mess with me' is the message of its inky black fruits, licorice and tannins. We will never know how good the wine might have been at 14% alcohol, but you can't ignore the consistency of its message."
From the Winery
Shiraz fruit was selected from low yielding, mature vineyards in the Barossa. Fruit was crushed and de-stemmed before fermentation on skins took place in a variety of different fermenters. Fermentation developed intense colour and extracted soft tannins from the skins.
The wine was matured in seasoned and new French and American oak barrels for twenty two months and individual vineyard parcels were kept separate throughout the winemaking process and blended just prior to bottling.
