Shiraz 2017



Tasting Note

Deep purple-red. Enticing ripe blackberry and dark chocolate aromas are highlighted with hints of violets and nut-like oak. The full-bodied palate overflows with dark chocolate berries, framed by chewy tannins and a slatey minerality. Seriously good now, careful cellaring for a few years will reward the patient.

Available nationally at Dan Murphy's stores.


Deep, dark colour, with a strongly oak-infused bouquet which suggests blackberry, star anise, vanilla and peppermint. The palate is full-bodied and juicy, loaded with fruit sweetness and an attractive array of flavours. The finish is long and satisfying, the fine tannins helping to balance the generosity of the fruit. A smart wine indeed, and surprising value. 90/100  Top Value

Huon Hooke,, May 2019

A complete, balanced, easy-drinking red with good berry fruit and faint savouriness from oak. Ripe, integrated tannin. A standout at this price. 90/100  Top Value

Toni Paterson,, May 2019

It’s medium-bodied, and there are no bumps on the road at any stage – just easy rolling along with food-friendly flavours at the right price. Has made good use of the vintage. Special Value. 90 pts.
