"A blend of Shiraz (70%) and Mataro from 1893 Central and 1919 Eastern vineyard plantings, and 1920 Eastern vineyard bush vines. Love the difference the Mataro makes here. Of the three Shiraz based wines, this is my favourite.
Plum, black tea and tar, blueberry, licorice, cocoa and dried herb perfume. Medium bodied, almost silky and supple, with a beautiful run of fine grained tannin, fresh acidity and a savoury/fruit sweet finish of immaculate length. Has a bit of X factor, and feels composed and self-assured, even as a young wine. Excellent. 95 Points/Drink 2017-2033+" - Campbell Mattinson, Winefront
