    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby in color this wine exhibits a complex array of raspberry, dark berry and plum fruit characters with hints of spice and tobacco. The palate is rich in fruit and intensity, but retains its elegance through its wonderful texture. The 2008 Cooralook Shiraz embodies the affinity between the Heathcote region and the shiraz grape.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple in texture and generous in flavor, with cherry and spice notes playing against mineral character as the medium-weight finish folds them all together. Drink now through 2016.

    The 2008 Shiraz gives a deep garnet-purple color and aromas of warm blackberries, black raspberries, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cumin seeds, plus a whiff of star anise. Crisp acid and a medium level of rounded tannins structure the generously fruited, full bodied palate, giving a long harmonious finish. It is ideal for drinking now if you enjoy primary freshness, or cellar to 2016 for a less fruity, spicier expression.

    The Wine Advocate

    Deep crimson-purple; a spicy, black fruit bouquet leads into a supple, medium-bodied palate, blackberry to the fore, but also with notes of licorice and spice. Cellar-worthy.
