96 Points James Halliday
64% shiraz, 20% mataro, 16% grenache, matured for 12 months in used French (66%) and American (34%) hogsheads. Salt of the Barossa earth, with no airs or graces, but calmly asserting its lineage from the word go and through to the aftertaste. I particularly like the licorice and edgy/smoky charcuterie nuances that flow easily across the palate. Drink to 2030.
