96 POINTS: Andrew Caillard MW, Andrea Pritzker MW & Angus Hughson; The Vintage Journal
95 POINTS: Dave Brookes, Wine Companion

“Deep crimson. Intense black cherry, blackberry praline aromas with roasted chestnut, cinnamon notes. Seductive and powerful concentrated with deep-set pure dark berry fruits, fine supple/velvety tannins, superb roasted chestnut, marzipan notes. Finishes chocolate with refreshing mineral notes."
 - The Vintage Journal

“Shiraz sourced from a single vineyard on the western edge of Greenock Creek; destemmed and matured in French and American oak for 14 months. Them Kalleske lads know their way around the Western Barossa, I guess 150 years of continual family ownership of their farm does that. Classic Western Barossa fruit density and flow, studded with fine, ironstone tannins, baking spices, pure macerated plum and summer berry fruits and earth, finishing long and true to its plot of sandy loam, red clay and limestone. Lovely.”
 - Dave Brookes

Dark black in colour. The aroma is uplifting, displaying intense black fruits so typical of the Greenock vineyard.  There is rich fruit cake, sweet tobacco, dark chocolate, coffee and cedary oak along with mixed spice. This dark richness continues to the full-bodied palate.  There are immense ripe fruits with a balanced wealth of oak complexity to thoroughly match.  Tannins are robust with an edginess seamlessly countering the plush fruit.  The ideal combo of dark fruits, classy oak and solid tannins mesh beautifully throughout and continue in unison to the finish of incredible length.
