James Halliday Tasting Notes:
This preens the regular Shiraz’s mane with added flare, giving greater gusto to the intensity of the fruit and the oak applied. Sourced from the original 70s plantings, there is an additional element of spice, too: clove and cardamom. Betel leaf and anise ply their intrigue across a kaleidoscope of dark fruit flavours, blue and black all. The finish is penetrating and long, driving across the mouth and down the throat. Cola and barbeque notes linger. Nothing is out of place.
Red berries spice, plums and cloves on the nose follow through to the palate but it is the balance and length that really finishes this wine.
