A superb example of classic Barossa Shiraz, showcasing fruit from the Seppeltsfield sub-region. Bold, full-flavoured and complex, it offers great depth and silky tannins. Magnificent drinking now but will reward medium-term cellaring.

"Good depth of red/purple colour, with a reserved aroma of red fruits with an earthy, 'rusty bucket' mineral overtone. The palate is fruit-sweet and jubey, very ripe and almost lush, richness bordering on syrupy, but there is enough tannin to rescue it at the finish. Lots of wine here for the price." 20 AUG 2021
