When one of the earlier releases of the Journey's End Embarkment Shiraz (2002) outranked Penfold's Grange in Halliday's 2005 Australian Wine Companion, the label developed an instant following which has continued since. The wine is made using six different Shiraz clones which add complexing layers to the finished wine. These clones were first identified in 1964 by Harry Tulluch of the South Australian Department of Agriculture and include SA1654 (The most widely planted Shiraz clone in Australia) which produces wines of intense black purple colour with a distinct black pepper character; SA2626, a firmer tannin structure with flavours of stewed fruit and sour cherries. SA1127 has spectacular dense purple black colour and the aroma is of violets and cherry palate flavours. SA712 is dominated by chocolate and plum flavour whilst BVRC30 offers an earthy, farmyard character to Shiraz.

A very generously styled McLaren Vale Shiraz
Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. The nose displays excellent intensity with perfumed aromas of liquorice allsorts, confectionary, vanilla, dark plum and mocha end notes. The palate is full bodied with generous flavours of liquorice allsorts, dark plum, blackberry and confectionary followed by some spice and blackpepper back palate flavours. Velvet smooth tannins with long dark plum, liquorice allsorts and blackpepper aftertaste.
Drinks wonderfully now but will also cellar a further 4-5 years (2009-2014)
