Big, black, ripe fruit with generous toasty oak. A smoky, brooding wine that is ultimately satisfying, full-bodied and smooth. Perfect for pizza night, poker night, movie night or a night on your own.

Shiraz food pairings: meat lovers' pizza, hamburgers, juicy steak.

Had at bonfire bistro
Steve rated this wine as 96/100
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Interesting resin cork. Ripe raspberry, herbal spice aromas. Straightforward and uncomplicated Shiraz with gobs of red berries, along with cedar oak flavours. Chewy, ripe tannins. Medium-bodied. Good, easy-drinking AU Shiraz that I'll be enjoying with chicken meatballs in masala curry sauce. Tasted Feb/2012.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
