"From Barossa Ranges fruit, this is a terrific Shiraz which will benefit for an extended stint in your cellar (in truth, delicious now, but if you can keep your hands off it, you won’t be disappointed in a decade or more). The fruit is handpicked, cold soaked and then undergoes a wild ferment for a ten day period.
Dark crimson, there is coiled power here. Good concentration and perhaps a touch of oak, but it is extremely well integrated, such that it is effectively invisible. A lovely, finely focused and yet full of flavour style of Barossa Shiraz. Peter Schell and his team walk this tightrope with seeming ease. Chocolate, bay leaves, coffee grinds, dark berries, cherries and plums. Even a hint of vegemite. Very good length here. An exciting future ahead."
