    Winemaker's Notes:

    The warmer 2001 vintage was ideal for McLaren Vale Shiraz, allowing the fruit to easily and steadily attain its full ripeness. The result is a Shiraz deep red in colour, displaying rich, ripe berry notes on the nose. Exhibits ripe blackberry and plum fruit flavours, a result of 18 months maturation in a combination of both American oak (predominantly) and French oak.

    Drinking very well now, full in flavour, with good structure and length and will continue to develop those wonderful fruit and oak characters over the next 6-8 years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Saturated ruby-red. Musky aromas of roasted plum, game, smoke and nutty oak. Fat and sweet; more pliant and generous than this producer's 2001 cabernet, but still possesses sound acidity. Easygoing finish features lush tannins and good length. Aged in three-quarters American and one-quarter French oak.

    What a nice bottle of wine. The age has added just a touch of brown to the color but the aroma and taste have plenty of fruit left. I was disappointed I didn't buy more.

    Like eating a plum on a warm summer day lightly sprinkled with pepper. At this price, it's worth getting a couple bottles. The age on this one shows though - store upright for at least a couple of hours and then decant.
