Shiraz 97%, Viognier 3%. This year’s Shiraz starts out quietly and really takes its time to offer up its charms. Cool blue fruits, cherry, clove and mint aromas emerge from this beautifully restrained and well-mannered wine. The nose unfurls over time, taking on complex notes of sandalwood, treacle and black pepper. It’s all very svelte and sophisticated, with just a hint of exotic luxury and opulence. The palate has a lovely sense of elegance, freshness and control, with wonderful frolicking between the spiciness of the fruit, the briary, peppery mid-palate and the fine structure and inky richness of the back palate. It feels effortless — nothing looks forced or out of proportion — and the flavours persist, fading gently before inviting another look. Drink for 8-10 years, or more. – Sandra de Pury
A fresher style of Shiraz, showing just-picked elderberries, rosewater and a hint of brambleberries and underbrush. Light to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink this young and enjoy! Screw cap. 91 points. Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com June 2018
