Tasting Notes

First tasted Jan '17, no change in price. 'Includes 3% viognier, destemmed only, co-fermented, 9 days on skins, matured in French oak (35% new) for 16 months. Vivid crimson-purple; fruit, oak and tannins are in perfect alignment, all expressive, the juicy blackberry and satsuma plum fruit has clearly gained freshness from the viognier, and allows textural complexity free play. A lovely Barossa Valley shiraz.' This elegant and fragrant wine is even more enjoyable now. James Halliday
