  • Well this was a huge surprise big bold fruit typical Shiraz. Decanted 3 hours lots of sediments need to be strained. Maybe another year if cellared properly.

  • Compared to the 2004 (under cork), the 2005 (under screwcap) is holding up beautifully. Even evolved a bit over the evening. A big, classic Aussie shiraz with enough structure to handle the high alcohol and big fruit. Not sure this will improve any further but great drinking now.

  • Still drinking beautifully. Popped and poured. Lots of dark fruit and anise. Full bodied, acidity still going strong. Drink now or hold another couple years.

  • Massive smoky oak fruit and lots of warmth ftom the 14.5% alcohol. Still super lively after all these years, with great acidity. For the style this is absolutely on point, and well made, but it's hard to appreciate. Maybe in the dead of winter curled up in front of a fire...

  • Last bottle, best bottle. Even at 14.5%, this comes across as reminiscent of old-school South Australian Shiraz. Lovely sweet oak, gorgeous and classic shiraz character. The development of the wine (under stelvin) is marvellous, with a lot of sediment caking the bottle (requires careful decanting). The typical sweetness of the expression of terroir is matched by the leather, smoke and tangy fruit. This is a very big wine. and it certainly shows its alcohol, but I felt the wine had rare balance and poise for such a style. Really fie wine.
