Morambro Creek Shiraz
Morambro Creek
Australia - South Australia - Padthaway

The Morambro Creek is a seasonal course that runs through the middle of the Bryson vineyards on its way to the Jip Jip Rocks Conservation park.

The wine shows a deep inky black & purple color. The nose is perfumed with lifted mint, blueberry, vanilla and spice with a touch of liquorice and white pepper in the background. Expansive palate, smooth lush ripe blue-black fruits, nicely balanced oak, plenty of concentration with a long finish.

halliday logoIt would be easy to argue that oak has been applied too heavily here but then, the weight of rich, sweet, plum-drenched fruit does its best to shoulder it. This wine is chubby with both texture and flavour, its resin and choc-mint characters offset by an all-you-can-eat serve of assorted berries. - James Halliday"

wa91"Mint, chocolate and plummy fruit appear on the nose of the 2014 Shiraz. It looks to be fully mature, with supple tannins framing the full-bodied palate that tapers into a crisp finish that echoes of cola, soy and roasted meat. - Joe Czerwinski"

vinous logo 250"(aged in 35% new French and American oak barriques): Dark purple. Deeply pitched black and blue fruits on the perfumed, spice-accented nose, with suggestions of vanilla and mocha emerging with air. Round, sweet and expansive, offering sappy blueberry and cherry compote flavors and a strong jolt of violet pastille. A licorice note appears on the very long, subtly tannic finish, with the spice and floral notes echoing emphatically. - Josh Raynolds"

jhawc logo 250"Good color; an opulent, medium to full bodied wine a wash with black fruits, spices, fruitcake and well integrated oak; the tannins, too, play a positive role in a wine with a long future. Drink to: 2032. - James Halliday"

Beverage Tasting Institute"Garnet black color. Rich melted toffee, strawberry-raspberry pie, watermelon gelato, honeycomb, and clay aromas are inviting with a satiny fruity medium-to-full body and a long, tangy pomegranate, tomato, praline, sour cherry, and passionfruit finish. A sensationally delicious shiraz that hits all of the high notes with complexity, power and finesse."

tanzer iwc 91 pts"Inky purple. Powerful blueberry, cassis, licorice and dark chocolate on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and sweet on the palate, with potent dark fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors accompanied by suggestions of olive paste and black pepper. Finishes with smooth tannins and very good length, leaving behind notes of blueberry, violet and smoke. -JR"
