Details

"There are few places in the world outside of Portugal that can make wines that are worth comparing with Portuguese vintage port, and Australia is one of them. California not. The length and balance of the supple blue and black fruits is admirable."

- James Halliday, Aug 2018


 

"2016 JMK Shiraz VP is thick purple-black in colour. The aromatics are intense, alluring and energetic. Leaping from the glass is dark chocolate, brandied cherries, blackcurrant, raisin, fruit cake, clove spice, prunes, licorice and perfume. The palate is rich, full-bodied and equally as alluring. There are flavours of cherry ripe, blackberry and a hint of coffee. The brandy spirit is evident and extremely well woven throughout. Natural grape sweetness is well restrained, smartly complimenting the primary fruit. The mouthfilling flavours are balanced with very fine tannins adding structure and definition. A suitably dry and lengthy finish further enhances this refined wine. JMK is a harmonious and opulent wine that can be enjoyed now or after a decade or more in the cellar." - Kalleske
