Wine Description

The wine's bountiful dark berry fruit, rich mocha undertones lead to an expansive midpalate with a gorgeous mouthfeel that is downright velvety... making it perhaps the richest, most concentrated an intense Shiraz

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) 2011 was an unusual year in South Australia. The 2010 drought finally ended, leading into a cooler than average growing season. For Shiraz, slower development means deep, rich, concentrated flavors while still maintaining great balance and acidity. The aromas of cocoa, warm spice and dark fruit are very powerful from the first whiff. In the mouth, the wine is layered with rich blackberry, dark cherries and hints of dark, creamy chocolate ganache. The finish lingers on, hanging on your palette while the fruit and spice flavors slowly change and fade.

    (From 2008 Vintage) Rating: 90/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 10/09. The name gives it away. This is a rich, superripe wine that emphasizes its plush texture, layering fig, blueberry, sweet oak and black pepper in a finish that lasts. A primary, drink-it-right-now wine to open near steaks and charcoal.
