    Winemaker's Notes:

    The dense, rich color indicates the power and intensity of fruit, with complexity and elegance the truly distinguishing characters of this wine. Bright blackberry, maraschino cherry and satsuma plum aromas are enriched with anise, liquorice and subtle roasted spice from ageing in French oak. Succulent texture and supple tannins extend throughout the palate, and red liquorice flavors provide a long, distinctive finish.

    Fruit for the Victorian Shiraz is sourced from several cool climate regions including the Yarra Valley, Heathcote and Bendigo with each region providing complexity to the blend. Yarra Valley Shiraz grown on sedimentary soils around our own Green Point vineyard is typically fragrant and spicy. Heathcote Shiraz grown on the deep red soils of the Mt Camel Range is bright and deeply colored with fresh blackberry flavors. Bendigo Shiraz grown on alluvial soils contributes savory tannins with hints of eucalypt and the inland climate of the northern foothills of the Great Dividing Range provides Shiraz with rich structure and weight.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromatic spicy red and black fruits lead into an attractive, medium-bodied but long palate, with delicious red fruit flavour, polished tannins and French oak.

    You've got to be kidding me. I'd give it a 86.

    This may rank around number 4 out of the last 8 Australian Shiraz wines I've tasted in these past 6 months, so I'd say it's in the middle of the pack for me. Not a fruit bomb, which is a positive quality for me. Also, the alcohol does not intrude so much on the finish. Overall, this is a fair bargain, but not one of the real stars of the $15-20 range.

    I was surprised to note that this wine was not corked but had metal cap. Also did not meet my expectatin in terms of maturity and its taste on palate.

    I agree with those rating it poorly. I don't know how this is even a rated wine much less the extremely high 95. This is by far the worst wine I have ever sampled.

    What a shock to the senses (in a good way)! This wine is fabulous. Deep, dark purple; barely letting the light get thru. A bouquet of vanilla with a pleasant earthiness that perks you up for the coming taste. And then - POW! Chocolate, licorice and then more of that silky vanilla as it lingers on to an exquisite finish, just melting away like a slow sunset. Only, unlike a sunset, you get to have another sip. It was a beautiful day in the hot sun by the pool today and now we've got the BBQ going. I opened this wine and it completed the day. Perfection. An incredible deal at this price!
