“Hand-picked from the Willandra vineyard in the Barossa Valley, it is an
outstanding wine, still amazingly youthful, with a cascade of plum, blackberry,
liquorice and multi-spice flavours on the very long, superbly balanced and
focused palate. It spent 24 months in a mix of new and used oak, now totally
integrated.” James Halliday
REGION Barossa Valley
COLOUR Deep ruby red
BOUQUET The bouquet is
delightfully complex. In its aromatic depths are plum, spice and clove notes,
with a hint of vanilla and even roasted meat.
PALATE Immediately supple and
beguiling, the flavours keep building with plum, spice and clove layered over
chocolate and vanilla notes. Medium to full-bodied, the wine has an assertive
texture with abundant fine tannins. Seductively poised, this wine reflects all
that is great about Shiraz grown in ancient Barossan soils.
