This wine is made from a blend of 50% Shiraz, 35% Grenache and 15% Mouvedre, all grown on the Olive Hill Block and matured entirely in French oak. Totally black purple colour with deep black purple hue. Excellent lifted nose with aroma of plum, spice, blackberry, leather and liquorice followed by an earthy end note. The palate has an abundance of flavours with liquorice and mocca.

Robert Parker's Review
A blend of 50% Shiraz, 35% Grenache, and 15% Mourvedre from vines averaging 10 years of age, the 2002 Olive Hill was aged in 30% new and 70% used French wood. Earthy balsam wood, pepper, dried herb, black cherry, raspberry, and plum aromas jump from the glass of this full-bodied, rich, firmly-structured red. While less exuberant and up-front than its siblings, it is beautifully proportioned, pure, and impeccably well-made. The most elegant offering in this portfolio, it will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and keep for a decade.
