    Winemaker's Notes:

    2008 in the Barossa will be remembered as a difficult year due to a heat spike during vintage. Daily monitoring of fruit quality and flavor development was extremely important. Smart canopy management resulted in good, albeit extremely limited, quality.

    It was once the tradition of a small group of Barossa pioneers to retreat to the cool stone depths of an old vineyard cottage. Here they would while away many hours playing cards and drinking wine away from the critical eyes of puritanical souls. The cottage still stands among the vines that produce this wine, a flavorful, aromatic drink that always 'comes up trumps!'

    Critical Acclaim:

    Deep crimson-purple; a rich and full-bodied shiraz with black fruits centre-stage, dark chocolate, licorice and spice on the perimeters; I suppose there are tannins and oak there too, but the fruit has control.

    Displays a smoky, toasty, spicy nose leading to a fruit-filled, succulent Shiraz with a bit of underlying structure ... can be enjoyed now and over the next 6-8 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Clear, focused and detailed, delivering a juicy mouthful of plum, berry and tobacco flavors, hinting at clove and nutmeg as the finish lingers effortlessly. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made. –HS

    Good wine but overrated by a couple of points and is too pricey for this style.
