    December 11, 2015 - A relatively light colour for the 15%alc
    On the nose it belies the alcohol with red fruits backed by 'coffee cream' and a little tar/creosote. Good complexity in these bold aromas.

    Likewise the alcohol is mostly hidden on the palate except for a midly hot finish. There is good acidity which is important as the fruit is a little jammy (a common issue for me and Grenache).

    Of it's style, pretty decent, though I'm not a huge GSM blend fan, rather preferring wines where the order is reversed!

    July 11, 2014 - Burnt red tones in the glass for this young wine was a surprise, but lively nose, bright caramel/butterscotch aromas. Soft feel in the mouth, nice berry fruits came through - doesn't linger at all.

    March 1, 2014 - colour is rather translucent red. Nose of earth, medicinal bouquet, some confectionary notes, red fruits, burnt wood unmistakingly barossa. On the mouth medium bodied, , some sour cherry fruit, smooth and juicy. Slightly too high acidity for me and lacks structure. Smoky edge both nose and palate puts me off a little. I prefer decent cote du rhone for same price. This was easy going and nice but would not buy again. Best drunk now. My wife liked it more than I. Australian Shiraz is awesome, can't say same about their gsm blends. Of course there are few exceptions.

    June 15, 2013 - Tasted twice. Soft on entry. Juicy red fruit with subliminal touch of white pepper. Elegant, it builds in intensity onto the medium-long finish. Nice.
