Imagine traditional McLaren Vale shiraz flavour but with a modern, bright appeal and fresh acidity. A medium-bodied, easy-flowing red with mulberries, plum and baking spice, not to mention notes of choc-mint biscuit and earthy tannins.

Reviews of the 2018 Shiraz:

95 points, James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion:
"Oh come all ye faithful lovers of McLaren Vale shiraz. It's hard to say whether the variety or the region is the most important - and true - contributor to the depth and outright richness of this shiraz. The tannins also ring true to the theme, leaving no doubt about its longevity."

91 points, James Suckling:
"Attractive blackcurrant aromas and hints of leaves. There's a real blue-fruit edge to this shiraz. The palate has quite a brisk, assertive feel with smoothly delivered blueberry and blackcurrant flavors."

Reviews of 2017 Shiraz:

93 points, James Halliday 2019 Wine Companion
"It delivers a solid whack of dark berried flavour. This is a sure-footed wine, well-balanced and finished, with fluid delivery of coffee cream, blackberry, plum and choc-mint flavours. From start to finish, it keeps you satisfied."

Reviews of previous vintages:

Gary Walsh, June 2017, The Wine Front www.winefront.com.au
"Blackberry, smoky grilled meat sprinkled with pepper, a bit of purple flowers or something like that. Medium bodied, flavoursome, almost slurpy, but a bit more in it than that, with light tannin, spice and dark fruits, and a tidy finish. Lovely wine, drinking very well young. Doing a good job of it here." 91 points

Huon Hooke, March 2017, www.huonhooke.com
"Deep red/purple colour and a ripe, concentrated, deep-fruited aroma and palate flavour. The texture is soft and easygoing. Peppery blackberry and dark plum aromas. Concentrated, rich, soft and rounded. A very smart shiraz for one so young." 90 points
