Hopping out of a sassy little grape-den down in Osoyoos, let us all say a hearty "G'day" to this ripper of a good Shiraz, mate. This beaut is the fair dinkum, we can promise you that, no wuckas. Aged for 16 months in right-proper American Oak, there will be no whinging here about the full bodied and spicy notes chockers full of dark fruit flavours. As a wise country-man once said 'Crikey means gee whiz, wow!', and this wine will absolutely leave you exclaiming just that; she'll be right. Obviously a perfect pairing with shrimp on the barbie.
Awards & Ratings
Dark, hematic and brooding syrah with more aromatic abilities than you might think. Plenty of wood sheathing and spicy intensity, with heat, liqueur and a sense of foreboding. Dark soy and balsamic in a bad boy of a northern Rhône like syrah. Big, potent and impressive. Drink 2021-2027. Tasted blind at NWAC19, June 2019.
