    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep garnet red. The bouquet is indicative of the 2003 vintage characteristics. The dry winter delivered forward powerful aromas with expectations of a concentrated palate to follow. The bouquet has coffee mocha notes and a particularly dense mineral core, finished by an atypical cherry raspberry lift. The hallmark of Old Block Shiraz is its elegance and while that is inherent, the 2003 vintage is showing a slightly atypical power in its youth. This will ultimately evolve to a supple yet assertive vinatge of this classic Barossa icon.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very good colour; excellent texture, structure and length, befitting the '02 vintage; plum, blackberry, dark chocolate and a touch of mocha oak; supple, silky and harmonious.`

    Has depth and plenty of zip, showing off its ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors against refreshing acidity and a nice hint of dark chocolate on the long, refined finish against superfine tannins. Better than previously reviewed.
