Other Reviews....
From 121yo estate vines, open-fermented, 15 days cold soak with 17 days further skin contact, matured for 19 months in French oak (33% new). An extremely complex wine, juicy fruits of every colour and description engaged in an Indian arm wrestle with briary/spicy/savoury tannins, French oak the timekeeper, not engaged in the wrestle. Australia is lucky to have wines such as this.
Drink by 2038.

James Halliday's Wine Companion

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Block 6 has aromas of blueberry pie filling and warm black currants with hints of dark chocolate, cherry cordial, violets and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate fills the mouth with structured, youthful black fruits and savory nuances, supported by silken tannins and a lively backbone, finishing with great length.
Drink Date: 2016 - 2028.
