Has an intense nose and a generous, weighty palate. Hot climate Aussie Shiraz characters with black currant, blackberry, and a touch of mint. Black cracked pepper gives a spice element. The palate is very round and just barely contains the minimum amount of acid and tannin to hold the structure without feeling flabby. The finish has a good length and at times can feel a bit hot. Can be enjoyed now but will improve once the intense fruit core becomes more integrated. (Jan 12, 2011)

Grant Burge consistently puts out high value new world shiraz. A reliable choice.

Tasted 2010 Vintage. Smells dense with smoky, dark fruits, vanilla aromas. Blueberry flavours in the glass with hints of mint, lavender and pepper. Medium-bodied with a medium-length finish. Tasted May/2012.
