    October 3, 2019 - Typical full bodied Barossa Shiraz. Drinking well now but still has a couple of years ahead

    August 28, 2018 - In surprisingly good shape if you can deal with a lot of wood. Cold weather suits this ripe, boozy, oaky barossa flagship from the now defunct Colonial Estate. Less time in wood would have produced a much better result, the oak tannin being the major downfall. Fruit was good quality, dense and a touch overipe but true to the vintage. Not my style but credit for effort.

    November 12, 2016 - Decent wine, but no more. Nose of mulberries, red dirt, cedar and some alcoholic heat. Palate is savoury - almost into bitter but not quite for me - with mulberries, red plums, cocoa, black olive and silty tannins to close. Its just a bit clumsy in style, and the alcohol protrudes on the finish. Drink now or within the next 2-3 years, with food.

    April 4, 2016 - Couple hours in the decanter. Think this has a bit of time ahead of it, didn't fancy it as much as the 08 as it is still a bit bitter, but very drinkable wine nevertheless.
