This is a big but not overblown old-school style of South Aussie Shiraz, offering up notes of plums, black cherries, chocolate, coffee, dried herbs and black olives. The first sip yields a mouthful of tight-grained tannins and slightly hot alcohol, plus plenty of ripe, juicy fruit. Give this time for those tannins to loosen their grip. Drink 2020–2028 at least. 2016 Vintage Review.
