Reviews:

Gold, 95 points - Decanter World Wine Awards 2023. "Lovely lifted brambles and raspberries, with notes of black pepper and cinnamon, lovely nuances of mint and violets. Fresh and lively, with ripe tannins."

95 points The Wine Advocate (Erin Larkin) "The 2021 Zephyrus Shiraz is a brilliant wine. Luscious tannins frame a bounty of black and purple fruit in the mouth, peppering it with coal dust/graphite/black tea and black olive tapenade. It’s a really good, structural, balanced, spicy, exciting Shiraz. It is polished but earthy, too, really well handled."

95 points James Suckling (Ned Goodwin) "This is very good, for those after quality Barossa. 2021, an unimpeachable vintage by virtue of its cooler mien, refined tannins and palpable natural degrees of freshness. While the winemaking hand is evident, with smoky barrel fermentation notes, mocha oak and a clutch of floral reduction, the flowing fruit is pure and impressive. The structural attributes are well applied, integrated and serving to compress the inherent largesse of Barossa into a nourishing, drinkable whole. A class act. Drinkable now, but best after 2027."
