    Winemaker's Notes:

    The delightful aromatics are released as soon as the wine is de-corked, with layers of raspberries, apricots and crème de cassis cloaking subtle hints of black olive and cherry. A dark, rich and concentrated palate flows from black fruits into brooding anise and dark chocolate and is bound by tight, grainy tannin. This wine possesses a multitude of different facets and nuances that will constantly change and evolve.

    Blend: 98% Shiraz and 2% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    Co-fermented with a splash of Viognier, the 2007 Run Rig gives a very deep garnet-purple color and a perfumed nose of warm cassis, crushed blackberries and blueberries over anise, cassia, cloves, tea leaves, rose hips plus earthy hints of black truffles and tilled loam. The full-bodied palate offers rich, ripe but not over-ripe fruit with a taut structure of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing very long with a gamey / savory character coming through with some cedar and baking spices. Not a style to be broached too early, consider drinking this from 2015 to 2025+.

    The Wine Advocate

    Dark, dense and brooding, offering a bright light of spicy berry flavors pushing through the layers of dark plum, black olive, dried peach and licorice. Finishes with precision and intensity. Needs time to come together with cellaring. Shiraz and Viognier. Best from 2015 through 2020.

    Wine Spectator

    Strong colour, albeit with some development; an extremely complex bouquet, with black fruits, leather, tar and cedar dominant, the full-bodied palate adding fruitcake and mocha; the tannins are in balance, which is a blessing. Shiraz/Viogner.

    Australian Wine Companion

    Selected from eight dry-farmed parcels throughout Barossa, this shiraz's concentration and mineral-inflected tannins are emphasized by a drought year. Its warm, bright red fruit is chewy, deepening to black in a sweet finish.
