"From a 105 year old south-facing vineyard, two-thirds crushed on top of one-third whole bunches for open fermentation, 11 days on skins, matured for 30 months in French barriques. The depth, power and intensity of the thick velvet mantle of black fruits, licorice, spice and charcuterie will require a decade or more of patience if you are to extract the best of a very different shiraz." James Halliday

"Loaded with oak but the fruit is so bright and floral - so pretty - that it's entirely up for the challenge. Sweet, smoky, savoury and perfumed at once, this blue-red-black-berried wine comes shot with woodsy spice and primed with fine-grained tannin. It's best suited to the mid-long term cellar but then, it does drink well now." James Halliday
