2017 Project D Shiraz
“Project D being their dry grown Shiraz, from declared old vines. Mulberry, plum, kiss of oak – just an accent to the fruit. It is deep, touch of the earthen character in quality – and old vine – Barossa Shiraz.
A well made wine should possess an inherent balance, clocking in at 15% you’d barely know with this, that blue/black fruit mix reasserting its authority.
Incredible depth, and persistence of flavour here. Tanning is fine, seemingly an after thought to the wines substabtuve presense.”
– Vinsoniac – Stuart Robison
“From 50y/o dry-grown vines, matured in new and second use French oak. Shows the depth and richness that old vines can impart.
The usual Barossa Shiraz descriptors of plum ad blackberry are in place, and the oak is in evidence.
The layered texture and length of flavour gives this wine some extra character.”
– James Halliday and Steven Creber
2016 Single Vineyard Shiraz
“The ‘Classic Aussie red blend’ finds good ground here. There’s saltbush and cassis whiffs, a touch of sweet earth and gum leaf, the character comes around. Grippy tannins tug through the finish. It ticks many boxes. 14.5% reviewed by Mike Bennie.”
