Ranked #1 of 62 2014 Shiraz tasted from Barossa Valley.

Deep red with a good tint of purple. The bouquet is richly ripe blackberry and some overtones of smoky, sooty earthiness and a hint of dark chocolate. In the mouth, it's full-bodied and deep, not a blockbuster nor oaky, but has a fruit-sweet core. The ample tannins are quietly gripping and authoritative without any astringency. A lush, decadent and classical Barossa shiraz of superb quality. Long term. 20/5/2016

Drink 2016 to 2039
