The 2002 vintage, considered to be one of the best quality years for decades, has produced a wine of superb depth.

 

Not subtle, but this whopper is crammed with lots of good flavours and is rich and powerful. Mint, anise and eucalyptus aromas; very ripe fruit; massive body and structure. A meal in itself..

Professional Reviews

96/100
Wine Companion
Elegant, medium-bodied; excellent texture and structure; fine, intense black fruits, no hint of alcohol heat; integrated oak, long, lingering finish.
, James Halliday Issue: Dec 2004



88/100
The Wine Advocate
The dark ruby-colored 2002 Shiraz reveals a gorgeous bouquet of creamy oak, melted asphalt, blackberries, and a notion of wood. While some jagged tannin is noticeable, and the finish is shorter than in previous vintages.

Liquorice on a stick !
It's not often you experience a 13 year old Shiraz which has a sense of pure elegance, and has held together so well that it makes me want to run out and buy more of the current vintage and lay it down. The last time I drank this wine was in - London in 2006 @ Richard Corrigan's Michelin star restaurant. It was the only Aussie wine on the menu.
It was good then, but it's amazing now. It really is a testament to good provenance. Very little sediment is an indication of its elegance.  Subtle spices, cardamom and liquorice beautiful length a joy to behold. I'm glad I have 3 more bottles left!
