    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pour this wine into a big glass and let the white pepper and spice swirl on the nose. With time you'll get flowers, fresh earth, fennel leaf and bright red fruit. A very pretty start. The palate is bright and fresh too, red licorice mixes with more spice and pepper dusted mulberries. The tannins are fine and talc-like, laced with minerals and nice length. This wine is all about fragrance, balance and elegance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From the Blewitt Springs subregion, the 18-year-old vines youngsters, but already providing high quality grapes. This is the coolest of the subregions, endowing the wine with a fragrant bouquet of dark fruits merging with the red on the palate; that has a fine structure built on classy tannins, the end result a wine with effortless power and drive.

    Deep purple-black in color, the 2010 The Bamboo Scrub Single Vineyard Shiraz has heady notes of chargrilled meat, tar, anise and violets that overlay an aromatic fruit core of black plums and cassis. Medium-bodied and packed with earthy and meaty black fruit flavors, it is supported with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins, crisp acidity and a long finish. Drink it from 2014 to 2023+.

    The Wine Advocate

    Inky purple. Smoke-accented dark fruit aromas show serious power and become spicier with air. Lush, weighty and wild, offering intense cassis and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of smoked meat. Closes with solid grip and excellent length, leaving a suave floral note behind.

    International Wine Cellar

    Dense and plush, with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit playing against smoky, savory notes. Comes together on the refined finish. The tannins show some bite, but the flavors emerge easily enough.
