"Deep garnet purple color. Bold aromas of menthol lozenge, chocolate, nougat, honey, blueberry pie and peppercorns with a supple, vibrant fruity-yet-dry medium-to-full body and a long, pure spicy berry and sandalwood accented finish. A fun, flashy bbq wine."

"Eucalypt, rhubarb, and boysenberry aromas appear on the nose of the 2016 Shiraz. It's medium to full-bodied, with the supple tannins and crisp acids expected in this sort of wine. Easy to drink and priced for a crowd. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Interim end of September 2018), 87 pts
"From South Australia's sunshine soaked Limestone Coast, this is a ripe, polished Shiraz that opens with notes of chocolate plum cake, pepper spice, beets and vanillin oak. There's an astringency to the granular tannins, which dries the mouth out, but the fruit is there, too. A bit more personality than most in its price range. - CHRISTINA PICKARD" - Wine Enthusiast (October 2020), 88 pts
