The top wine (of 217 entries) and trophy winner at the 2002 Visy Board Great Australian Shiraz Challenge. A year ago, the slightly assertive oak stood out, but no more. Great colour, then dark berry, licorice, leather and spice aromas flow into a rich, complex palate, with fruit, oak and tannins in harmonious abundance. Drink to 2020.

Dusty and earthy but still bright and well balanced with plenty of cassis. Very Mclaren Vale. Drank well with a roast chook and was not completely embarassed by the 91 Hill of Grace we had prior! Very Good. Drink Now
