"This is drinking beautifully. Powerful but subtle and not sharp at all. Peppery finish . Very nice for the price."

Now donning a largely unrecognizable orange label this long time customer favourite is as good as ever. Ben Jeanneret calls this curiously named wine 'Rank & File'. It's what Shiraz represents to him - the heart and soul of the Australian wine industry. Sourced from some of the best low yielding, old vine vineyards in Clare, the fruit for this wine was matured in a mixture of French and American oak of which 16% was new for 14 months.
Rich, dense and powerful, this is a swashbuckling Clare Valley Shiraz.
Magnificent density of colour displaying an impenetrable inky black core and a very deep dark purple black hue. Sniffing offers up an intense aromatic profile of black plum, liquorice and black cherries over toasty vanillin cedar and spicy pepper notes. Showing off Rank & File’s hallmark flamboyance and richness this big, lavish Clare Shiraz is swamped with opulent blackberry liqueur, liquorice, dark plum and luscious black cherry flavours which are supported by underlying toasty vanillin cedar and spicy pepper characters. There’s a sturdiness to the tannins which impart a slight sense of chewiness to the finish, yet they appear almost velvet like beneath the tidal waves of black fruit. Superb concentration and power with a long spicy conclusion of blackberry liqueur, liquorice, luscious black cherries, toasty oak and black pepper.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
