"The core of this wine is Barossa Valley Shiraz (85%) the remaining 11% shiraz and 4% cabernet sauvignon from the Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, McLaren Vale and Magill Estate. In time honoured fashion, it finished its fermentation in 100% new American oak hogsheads, where it spent the next 17 months. It has exceptional hue and depth to the colour; the smoky complexity to the black fruits (no red or blue) of the bouquet also offers licorice and earth aromas; only a great Burgundy could have more nuances defined each time you revert to the bouquet. You could lose yourself, Narcissus-like, looking endlessly into the reflection of the palate; for all its power, there is not a hair out of place, the tannins outstanding. There is not the slightest question this will be one of the greatest Granges in the pantheon of ‘52, ‘55, ‘71, ‘96 and ‘06." James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au 99 pointsJames Suckling has rewarded this wine with a perfect score of 100 points.
