(2013 Vintage) This Boxer is astounding, so rich and so smooth and so powerful. Succulent berry flavours with luscious chocolate layers as well as licorice and spice. The deep dark colour of the wine matches the deep flavours of the wine. 2013 Boxer is rounded and full on the pallet and the perfect balance of tannins and fragrant oak support the impressive fruit.
"Matured in American oak, 57% new, the 2009 The Boxer Shiraz has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense blackberry, licorice, tar, menthol and cocoa bean aromas. Very full-bodied and with medium-firm fine-grained tannins and generous, warm-berry flesh, it is nicely balanced by crisp acid, finishing long and a little hot. Drink this one now to 2016." 91 Points The Wine Advocate
Complexed by combining the regional flavors of grapes, this wine has incredible power and purity. The grapes were grown on the Longbottom vineyard in Padthaway, the Birchmore vineyard in Langhorne Creek and the Mollydooker vineyards here in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 57% new and 43% one year old American oak.

Ken's Wine Guide(2005 Vintage) This wine is a big boy. You must decant it for at least 1 hour before you start to get a true appreciation of the wine. The bouquet of this wine is pleasant and has fruit filled aromas. Specifical...
