Midnight black core with a dark red hue. Sailing from the glass are red liquorice, red plum and peppered fennel like notes which are trailed by some earthy graphite and blueberry scents. The juicy mid weighted palate features red liquorice and blueberry fruits over red plum, subtle earthy graphite, clove and peppered fresh herb elements. Finely structured tannins finishing with a juicy blueberry like freshness on the medium to long aftertaste.

Other Reviews….
Single-vineyard Barossa shiraz from the Stone Well subregion; 25% whole bunches matured in a combination of new French oak foudres and seasoned barrels for 15 months. Crimson with purple flashes in the glass. Super fragrant and lifted with oodles of bunchy spice fluttering above the pure plum, black cherry and blackberry fruits. There's an exotic element here, with Asian spices, maybe a waft of washed rind cheese and amaro herbs along with licorice, chocolate, earth and purple floral notes. Spacious and pure on the palate with grippy kinetic tannins and a distinctly moreish vibe. Drink by 2028.
