Quick Overview

James Halliday's Top 100 97 Points
50% whole berries, 10% whole bunches, wild yeast openfermented, matured in French oak. Just another $30 McLaren Vale shiraz? Absolutely not. This is profoundly exciting, another masterpiece from Peter Fraser. It’s spicy, textured, with a rainbow of dark fruit flavours – bloody gorgeous.Weekend Australian Magazine, 10 November 2018


Campbell Mattinson 94 Points
Wild ferment, whole bunches, whole berries, classy oak but only where it’s needed. That beautiful sweet fruit. That texture like silk. That perfect integration of plum-shot fruit and posh, cedar-like oak. It smells, taste and feels pure, fine-grained and terrific, every step of the way.The Wine Front, 20 September 2018


 

Product Description

“This wine has a heady illusion of sweetness and confection, and after that lovely slender syrup establishes itself, the oozes of prune and black-berry emerge, and entwine with the dark chicory and juniper tannins and the faintest whiff of harness leather. All over the primary fruit and vegetation, it begins to prickle like summer, with smells of rain on hot sunbaked sandstone and rusty galvo, and explosives in the quarry.” - Peter Fraser, Winemaker


This superb shiraz has a rich core of dark fruits, blueberries, chicory, juniper and dark chocolate. It’s big, voluptuous and brilliantly balanced with great fruit sweetness, grippy finely grained tannins and fresh acidity. Perfect drinking now but will cellar for another 6-8 years if preferred. If you like big, rich McLaren Vale reds, this one’s for you. Pair it with steak and kidney pie for a great night in..

A plush nose of dried violets, blackberry compote, chocolate, brambles and sugar plums. The palate’s very in tune though with a good serving of pretty acidity, ripe yet steely tannins and a chewy finish. Drink in 2022. Screw cap.James Suckling Top 100 Australian Wines, December 2017

This is profoundly exciting, another masterpiece from Peter Fraser, Wine Companion Winemaker of the Year '16. It's not often I'm tempted to sneakily swallow half a mouthful of a wine, it's almost as if an unseen force refuses to let me actually drink a little. The wine is spicy, textured, with a rainbow of dark fruit flavours - bloody gorgeous.Halliday Wine Companion 2019
