    August 31, 2020 - Delicious wine typical of Barossa Shiraz Medium tannins and dark fruit for a well rounded taste. Will improve with further aging.

    February 11, 2019 - Dense dark fruits, spices, a jammy core, laced by dark chocolate. Smooth m+ tannins. Good balance and harmony in general. Need a little acidity to lift up? I take it as a character of Barossa. A very good one at its peak.

    Ap 5/5, Ar 13/15, Palate 17/20, Overall 3+4/10
    Total 92/100

    December 23, 2018 - Dense dark fruits, m+ acidity, m+ tannic, m++ finish. Big structure but need time for harmony.

    October 25, 2018 - Dark red, purple hue. Ripe dark Doris, dense mocha and creamy chocolate, moderate spices. Smooth and supple tannins. M+ finish with cedar and meaty notes. All balanced, fairly good weight and concentration, under actual price $25. Official online retail AUD60 seems like a marketing trick.

    Many gold medals, HH 94, SK 95

    May 30, 2018 - Allegiance wines keep knocking this out of the ball park with the Artisan label. A number of golds already and some high points scoring as well 94.95.96
    The third I have tasted and every year has been high quality and this one is no exception.
    These aren't your French light bodied wines.these are heavy and full .
    A little alcohol on the nose
    Soft tannins
    Plenty of fruit
    Well balanced
    Deep in colour
    Some oak evident
    slightly peppery

    The thing here though is, this wine is not at it's peak.
    i expect it too soften again in the next couple of years no doubt this will last at least 10 years .As long as the alcohol stays in check this is a wine well worth the $60.00 au
