AUSTRALIAN WINE COMPANION 2008 James Halliday
Bright purple-red, replete with dark fruits ranging through, blackberry, plum, prune and a dash of licorice; very focused and controlled; no artifice or exaggeration, simply classic restraint. Rating: 95 points
ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE - Issue 167 October 2006
The 2005 Shiraz exhibits an inkier purple colour as well as a deeper, richer, more nuanced style. Cropped at .8 ton of fruit per acre, which no doubt accounts for its awesome concentration, it is even better than the 2004 and should be longer lived, evolving for 15 years. Rating: 94 Points.
