REGION:
Barossa

TASTING NOTES: 
The wine delivers classical regional characters of dense, spicy blueberry fruit and savoury pan jus. Hints of liquorice, plum, and all-spice all delicately interwoven. 

A fine-grained tannin structure and depth of flavour all show that this wine has incredible future ahead of it.

A striking wine for its depth and richness, a riot of plum, blueberry and clove-cedar character, thickset in the palate but with that moreish, pillowy, lightly creamy texture that Barossa does so well. Weight is full, but the balance is all in tow. It's a wine that mobs the senses in the best possible sense.

A spectacular shiraz combining power and refinement; the splendidly expressed bouquet shows dark fruit intensity with chocolate tart, cedar, toasted spice and tapenade characters. It is impressively concentrated on the palate offering exceptional depth and breath, wonderfully enhanced by velvety mouthfeel and seamlessly woven tannins. Symphonic and breathtaking. At its best: 2022 to 2036.

From Nuriootpa and the Eden Valley, basket-pressed and matured in French oak for 24 months. The two regions generate complexity, savoury cadences from Nuri (in the Barossa Valley), richer, darker flavours from the Eden Valley. The net result is positive for a medium to full-bodied wine...Drink by 2036

A bigger, more plush wine than the 50-year-old, showing amazing density and concentration, flesh and fruit sweetness, and smoky oak char. A thoroughly decadent wine, very powerful. Great concentration, with big, robust tannins. A whopper of a wine, amazingly powerful and profound, with almost endless persistence. Most impressive. Fruitcake and graphite. Extraordinary wine.

This is a classic wine from a traditional Barossa estate that balances power and elegance. The nose is rich but enticing with aromas like chocolate-covered cherry, dried thyme and olive tapenade. Fine-grained tannins on the palate buoy a lovely midpalate of vibrant fruit. A chalky texture is made drier by the oak, but this will integrate into the wine with time. Drink 2023–2030.
