November 24, 2012 - Does not taste like an Aussie Shiraz at all. Lots of oak, smoke and very little fruit. Too much alcohol as well, quite unbalanced. Will not buy again.

January 29, 2012 - Color brillante de Rubi oscuro
Profundo con notas de pimienta, regaliz, frutos del bosque.
Suave y sedoso, muy elegante.

November 13, 2010 - (Decanter Fine Wine Encounter) Classic Shiraz nose, very peppery on a fruity background. tight mouth, quite alcoholic (14,5%), ripe blackberry, pepper again with a medium aftertaste

November 6, 2010 - Bright ruby red with a smoky, meaty, bacon fat nose: classic Northern Rhone aromas. But, this is from Australia and has the palate to match, with ripe blueberry fruit, oven cooked tomato and smoky spicy tannins.

June 5, 2010 - Dark purple colour with red brick elements. Very french nose, with earth, oak, leather, herbacious notes, and red berries hidden underneath. Strong, supple palate, with oak and dark cherry fruit. Mid weight with medium length. Impressively different aussie wine made by a Frenchy. Keep it up!

(Domaine Tournon Shiraz (Victoria)) A very lightly gamey nose here, with a touch of saddle leather too, along with brighter notes of orange zest and cinnamon. On the palate it has a fresh start, quite tingly with acid in fact, but with a supple weight behind it. It is grippy, freshly structured, but with a leathery edge to the fruit. Firm and solid, rather than bright, but nevertheless there is something appealing here. Good.
