Vibrant purple hue; elevation of 480 m above sea level purports to enhance a wines elegance, and while elegant in the Jim Barry meaning of the word, there is a powerhouse of dark fruits, chocolate and toasty oak all at play; medium to full-bodied, young, brash and refreshing, the finish is long, juicy, generous and even a little bit spicy; a lot to like for the price, but beware the oak. Drink [until] 2020. Score - 94. (Ben Edwards, winecompanion.com.au, July 17, 2012)
Ruby purple colour. This oaky shiraz displays typical pepper and dark fruit. There's good acidity that provides a counterpoint to the jammy fruit. Jammy but not overly confected. Timid tannins. Medium-full bodied. Good length here too. The oak is well integrated. Sipped well as a solo artist, and also jammed (pun intended) nicely with the sirloin steak band. Very approachable and currently headlining, so grip it n' sip it! June 2013.
