I bought this one sight unseen from my local dealer who was having a bin-end sale. It normally retailed for about $16. I liked it, a lot. From the Barossa Valley it oozed class and warmth, starting with a full-on nose of Asian Plums, black cherries and blackberries- gorgeous. Picture a bowl full of dark fruits….
Brooding black berries and eucalyptus with some smoke and tar hit the palate nicely with some polished tannins and slight acidity. A long finish of chocolate and earth mingle with some plum jam to finish things off. At 5 years of bottle age it is at peak and will go on for another 3 years I reckon. For the price I paid I would get more if I could. 92 points and 5 stars in my book for this 57% Shiraz, 43% Grenache blend that hid it’s 14.9% alcohol perfectly. Plus, it’s a cool name and a great label! Salut….
