Natalie's Score: 90/100
Bacon and campfire smoke on the nose of this big Australian red wine from oak aging. It's made from the country's flagship red wine grape Shiraz. Richard Tarlan was a favourite among the jesters to the Queen Elizabeth I and was the first to achieve national celebrity status. This wine is named in his honour, but it's no joke. Pair with lamb cutlets.
Shiraz food pairings: lamb cutlets, hamburgers, espresso and cocoa-rubbed flank steak, black bean soup, cheese.

Big, intense, full bodied Australian Shiraz. Aromas and flavours of chocolate, blackberry jam, mint and smoke. Signature white pepper noted on the finish. Excellent paired with strong flavoured hard cheese- think very old cheddar. Tasted Dec 2017
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of blackberries, India ink, vanilla and candied cherries, and baking spices. The taste is blackberry, vanilla, and raspberry. Quite smooth in the mouth with a medium-long cherry finish with a touch of spice.

Well, no surprises here! Big blackberry nose, creamy berry, cherry, vanilla palate. Pretty standard stuff, a sure-fire crowd pleaser!
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, a little jammy on the nose with stewed fruit, dark cherry, vanillia and oak spice. Medium full bodied, sweet ripe blackberry and some dried herb, juicy acidity, soft tannins and a medium length finish.
