Ranked #4 of 17 2004 Shiraz from Grampians
Deep purple red; aromas of dry spices, clean and vibrant. Taut, elegant, stylish palate, fine and dry, suave and gentlemanly. Has line and length: a delicious wine, with deep-set red and black-fruit flavours and clean, fine, assertive tannins. Fruit-driven style. Cellarworthy too. Best now to 2030.
95 Points James Halliday
Shares with the '03 and the '05 vivid flavours, yet has seamless fruit and oak integration on both the bouquet and palate. The flavours range through the expected spectrum of blackberry, spice, cracked pepper and licorice; long and vibrant mouthfeel, with good acidity. Drink to 2020.
