    Winemaker's Notes:

    A true reflection of Barossa's soil and climate, Entity displays youthful dark fruits of blackberry and plum that combine with a hint of mocha and savory French oak. The long, rich palate is driven by concentrated dark fruit characters that are balanced by firm tannins, bright acidity and well integrated French oak that adds structure and polish to the wine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Crimson-purple; the perfumed bouquet proclaims the class of the wine, its array of blackberry, plum and spice fruit duly delivered on the medium-bodied palate; silky tannins and quality oak complete the picture.

    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 Entity Shiraz displays vibrant aromas of warm cassis, crushed blackberries and black cherries over a spicy undercurrent of nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and anise. Full bodied and rich in the mouth, it is nicely poised with a medium level of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acid, finishing long with plenty of dark fruit and spice layers. Approachable now, it should drink best 2013 to 2023+.

    Bright purple. Black raspberry, cherry and violet on the nose, complicated by bitter chocolate, minerals and cracked pepper. Juicy and precise, with strong spicy lift to its red berry compote flavors. Not an overly rich style of shiraz, but offers a silky texture and serious depth of flavor. Finishes long, with fine-grained tannins and lingering red fruit and pepper notes.

    Excellent. But, don't forget to let it 'breath' before drinking.
