James Halliday

From two vineyard blocks at Nuriootpa 43 and 63yo; hand-picked in the early morning, 8 days on skins, 19 months in French oak (30% new). Said to be produced as an elegant wine, yet its high octane alcohol speaks of berries well and truly dimpled, if not raisined. You have to acknowledge that Reid Bosward knows these vineyards very well, and that the style is no accident. Regular buyers will not be disappointed.
