James Halliday 93:
"Deep crimson; a dark and savoury bouquet, with ample blackberry fruit, spicy oak and ironstone minerality; the palate offers racy acidity, gravelly tannins and a firm edge that not only captures attention, but also requires protein to maximise pleasure.The 2010 season is considered to be one of the standout seasons for Western Australia. Good spring rainfall and moderate temperatures thoughout the season allowed the vines to produce fruit with expressive flavours and ripe tannins."
The fruit was hand harvested and sorted; only the best berries were used for the wine.
A combination of earth, spice and black fruits make this a very complex and interesting Shiraz. Blueberry, black cherry and moist red earth are carried across to the palate. The tannins are soft with good persistence and length.
Roasted rack of lamb with chickpea and feta salad.
