Natalie's Score: 90/100

A big, robust, brooding red wine with full-bodied weight and layering. Attractive aromas and flavours of blackcurrant, cassis and cedar. Smooth and ready when you are. Try it with meat lovers' pizza. Shiraz food pairings: beef rosciutto, black bean soup. Best Beef Wine

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The cool and slow fermentation of this wine makes this wine very elegant with a fresh and full-on blackberry and black cherry nose. The Shiraz is deep ruby red (almost purple) in colour with blackberry, cherry, fine dried herbs, sweet cedar and long mocha finish on the palate. Both French and American oak were employed in the aging of this wine, adding layers of sweet spice, sweet tobacco and a touch of vanilla to its complexity. A mid-weight wine with well- integrated tannins this Shiraz is lovely with a prime roast or wild mushroom stroganoff. Enjoy!
Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This classic down under Shiraz offers an inky purple hue and an aromatic nose of spicy blackberry fruit. Mouth filling black and blue fruits follow on the palate with a pleasant touch of baking spice from time in oak. A perfect winter warm up, next to a bowl of beef stew. Enjoy through 2015. Tasted Feb 2014.
This full-bodied red wine was aged 14-16 months in American and French hogshead barrels. Source: Winery
