"An extraordinary wine, undoubtedly one of the greatest ever to appear under this hallowed label. Deep, dark red-purple hue and a powerful bouquet. The palate is explosively intense with seemingly endless length. I've rated it the best, the only one to receive 99 points." "

"One of the most perfect renditions of this single site...the signature spice and sage leaf are here. It's bursting with an array of dark brown spice aromas, pepper too, the fruits run from raspberry tinges through to deep blackberry, cassis and blueberry fruits, blue plums too. The palate is immensely smooth and soft, velvety tannins have deep-grained texture. It floats with richness yet lightness, and really fills out the palate and occupies every possible space...goes on seemingly endlessly, saturated in old vine Shiraz flavor yet perfectly poised. Tannins shimmer, acidity reflects off their smooth-honed surface. This is the Eden Valley equivalent of Burgundy's Le Chambertin, a bottomless well of flavour, elegant yet profoundly powerful and another brilliant addition to a superb run of recent vintages"

"This release is a beauty. It's complex and fascinating and more than a little mesmerising. I can honestly say that I loved the time I spent with it. It has notes of truffle and heightened blackcurrant. We're swept forward. The licorice, the leather, the lace of stem and tannin. It feels cool climate and warm climate at once, in a beautiful way. It rocks and it rolls. It will mature beautifully, perhaps even profoundly, its rolls of complex flavour gradually unfurled and unveiled"
