Ranked #72 of 133 2013 Shiraz from Barossa Valley
Deep red/purple very good colour, with an iodine-like aroma, the palate soft and fleshy, smooth and mellowing nicely. Not so soft, though: it has grip. A very tasty wine.
Drink: 2018 to 2038
97 Points James Halliday
A picture of good health, balance, flavour and length. It bristles with freshness, with power, with authority. The fruit - blueberry and blackberry, splashed with earth and ground coffee - is soft, but the tannin is ropey and firm, like arms around a bountiful harvest. A very long life is in store. Drink to 2040.
