The two Shiraz vineyards from which this wine is sourced complement each other well – The Marananga block provides intense, old vine produce with particular “blue fruit” offerings. The Nuriootpa block provides more “black fruits."

Nothing like a couple of 38 degree days in Sydney to get you in the mood for a couple of Barossan neck oils. I guess that’s how they do it in South Australia through their summer heat waves. No fear. Still goes down a treat. This comes off a couple of old vineyards (1899 and 1965) and hangs out in oak for just over a year. Such concentration yet such slippery ease to the wine. It’s so potent in its dark fruit, fig and date, cola and anise, sweet oak and spice scents. Couldn’t help but let a little past the tongue – such smoothness, density and length, yet this countering effortlessness that speaks like a thick pillow in the finest satin cover. Moreish in its richness and hedonism, it’s a superbly balanced wine of lushness, layers, fine spicy tannin and depth. Nailed it.
