Vibrant and rich blueberry and dark cherry with a hint of mocha. A bold an opulent palate, filled with generous red berry fruits, dark plums and completed by supple supportive tannins. Each parcel of Shiraz is individually matched to one of a selection of American oak barrels in which the wine spends one year maturing and gaining considerable texture and power prior to release.

92 / 100

James Halliday

(2016 vintage) A full-bodied wine, celebrating the butcher on horse-drawn wheels honouring the founding Lindner family''s horse-drawn butcher''s cart of the early 1900s. It is of large-charcoal-grilled T-bone dimensions, with a tarry note to its black fruits and firm tannins. Has excellent potential.

Campbell Mattinson

(2016 vintage) Full-bodied red. Clean, gutsy, fresh and well-made. A slide of vanillin oak rests on blackberry-and-plum fruit. Raspberry notes add both brightness and (fruit) sweetness. It's not rocket science but it's well done. If you like Barossa Shiraz, you can rely on this.
