Trophy - Best Shiraz - Limestone Coast Wine Show 2004
"A glorious merlot-cabernet blend of great texture and concentration. Earthy, sweet nose of spicy red berry fruits and cedary, charry oak. Powerful, ripe and firmly astringent palate with fine tannins..." Jeremy Oliver
"Outstanding colour; a fragrant burst of sweet fruits and spices leaps from the glass; much more elegant than many prior vintages; black fruits and very fine tannins to close." James Halliday - 96 points
Full red-purple; dense, dark berry, dark chocolate, and savoury/spicy aromas are a backdrop for a palate full of cassis, blackberry and chocolate supported by a great depth of ripe tannins. ...James Halliday
"Powerful but silky smooth; elegance and fruit freshness beyond the normal; black fruits running through the length of the palate; ripe tannins, restrained oak. Another testament to 2002. Drink Now-2022." James Halliday - 94 points
97 Points: James Halliday.
