Tasting Notes

JAMES HALLIDAY- 96 POINTS- Dramatically different from the '16, as it should be. 13 clones of shiraz made in small batches, variously spending 3-8 weeks on skins, matured for 22 months in French barriques (36% new). It's luscious, filling the mouth and then some with its multifaceted purple and black fruits, rounded tannins and high quality oak judged to perfection. One of those wines tempting you to have a mouthful or so. Best drinking 2018 to 2035. James Halliday
