Winemaker Notes

Blackened crimson. Floral edge to creamy black and blue berried fruit rugged roast meat, bacon fat, tea bag, peat, liquorice and spice are speckled within the low, earthy elevation of perfume. The full penthouse view; a majestic depth of flavour in tannin on the silky smooth finish. The most creamy of its Hickinbotham and Onkaparinga Syrah sisters; the polished and refined texture is addictively weighted and sublimely structured.

Critical Acclaim

WS 95
Wine Spectator

Lithe and elegant, all velvet and grace, with gorgeous blackberry and blueberry character floating effortlessly over a sleek frame. The finish just keeps sailing on, and the flavors seem to expand as they go. Best from 2010 through 2020.

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2006 Syrah Brookman Vineyard was aged in 100% new oak. Complex both aromatically and on the palate, it will benefit from extended cellaring of 8-10 years.

ST 93
International Wine Cellar

Inky ruby. Powerful, youthfully brooding cassis and candied plum aromas are complicated by dark chocolate, candied licorice, cola and vanilla. Brighter on the palate, which offers sweet dark berry flavors and a slow-building mocha quality. Impressively concentrated and palate-staining, but I don't find this over the top. Finishes with outstanding persistence and lingering berry qualities. I'll bet on this improving with at least four more years of bottle aging.
