"A ball of concentration, from the black fruit flavours, chocolate, licorice and tar on the full-bodied palate to the integrated oak - 21 months in French and American oak (30% new) and yet it doesn't drag you down. Ample tannins, too, so this will reward the patient, yet with a suppleness that makes it approachable in its youth."

"If you’re going to make an old school, oak-rich, black-fruited Barossa shiraz then best to also keep it neat, tidy and fresh.

That’s exactly what they’ve done here. It’s awash with toasty, coffeed, creamy oak but it’s well matched to the red/black fruit flavour and it feels well balanced throughout. They’ve done a fine job in the making and presentation of this release. Earth, oak-spice, violet and clove notes all make appearances here too but it’s juicy, firm with tannin, and not at all cumbersome. It should cellar well; tannin really puts a stamp on this wine, in a good way."
