Lashings of black fruits, licorice and spice; a long, lively finish with high-quality tannins and good oak. Barossa Valley Shiraz. Drink to 2024.

The 2004 “Antiquity” Shiraz was sourced from Shiraz vines ranging in age from 80-110 years of age. It was aged for 27 months in French hogsheads and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Opaque purple-colored, it delivers an enticing perfume of toasty oak, violets, fennel, plum, blueberry compote and blackberry liqueur. This leads to a full-flavored Shiraz in which notes of crushed stone, licorice, and chocolate make an appearance. The wine is mouth-coating, opulent, and altogether hedonistic. It has enough stuffing to evolve for 6-8 years and will continue to provide pleasure through 2025.
