Grapes from a 25-year-old Shiraz block.

Critics Ratings

‘Very special reserve bottling, 2010 has impeccable structure, balance & length, with tight flavour core, years away from unfurling. Big, exuberant & muscular, with complex, finely detailed spiciness & vibrant black cherry fruit.’ - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2013, 4.5*

‘Bright ruby-red. Pungent peppery lift to the aromas of dark berries, woodsmoke, minerals and dried herbs, along with a suggestion of syrupy dried berries. At once generous and a bit dry in the middle, with brambly dark berry and pepper flavors showing moderate nuance. The slightly drying tannins dust the front teeth. I wanted a bit more fruit.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (Sep 2012)
