A soft and fleshy shiraz boasting a lively palate of juicy red berry fruits, plum and spice, along with subtle chocolate and savoury characters from the oak maturation.Download Full Winemaker Note
At release the wine is a dark red colour with ruby red hues.
The wine has a seductive, lifted aroma characterised by plum, blackcurrant and dark cherry fruits along with subtle chocolate and a touch of oak derived spice.
The palate is rich, luscious and round with intense, perfectly ripened fruit characters. Mocha coffee and subtle spice characters complement generous fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. The wine is medium to full-bodied with a soft mid-palate and supple tannins. It has a well balanced structure with great texture, good length and lashings of fruit on the finish.
This wine can be enjoyed upon release but will reward careful cellaring up to and possibly beyond 2018.

Maurizio Corda, Drinks Trade, July 2012
Shiraz and blends
A minty, herbal nose with, lifted pretty floral notes; a well-integrated smooth palate with juicy sweet fruits and blackberry jam; nicely exotic and ripe with a mineral edge; good tannins and nice oak flavour.

Clare Valley and Surrounding Regions
Long, well-structured deep purple wine with lovely mulberry-like varietal fruit balanced by some very nice oak.
Beverage Testing Institute, Tastings.com, September 2012
Black raspberries, juicy plums, dried strawberries and plums with a medium body and juicy palate, light tannins and moderate acidity. Slight aspirin note on mid-palate perhaps from acidification. Satisfying with all the luscious fruit but without total balance.

World's greatest shiraz challenge
A pleasant, savoury style with exellent balance between berry fruits and creamy, spicy oak. Good flavour persistence.

Lisa Perrotti Brown, Wine Advocate, December 2013
Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2010 Shiraz displays expressive notes of blackberries, black currant and mulberries with hints of baking spices, chocolate box and licorice. Medium-bodied, it has a medium level of velvety tannins and a medium to high level of balanced acidity supporting the mouth-filling fruit, finishing long and spicy. Drinking nicely now, it should keep to 2016
