“Jasper Hill is largely responsible for bringing fame to what many believe will become one of Australia’s classic wine regions. Jasper Hill’s Shiraz based wines . . . are simply superb.” Langton’s Fine Wine Guide, 5th edition
"Admirably powerful and deeply fruited, this assertive and structured shiraz has a long cellaring future. Its smoky, meaty aromas of dark plums, mint and menthol reveal undertones of musk, prune and currant, while its palate shows a surprisingly degree of fruit sweetness and brightness.
