Robert Parker Jnr., The Wine Advocate ~ "Huge, ripe, surprisingly subtle and polished, this dense purple-hued wine offers layers of blackberry and currant fruit intermingled with spicy new oak, liquorice, cedar and loamy soil charcteristics. Full bodied and volumpuous, but not over the top, this beauty should drink well for 10-15 years."
James Halliday ~ "Full-bodied, but supple, round and plush, the sheer density of the black fruits from 100+-year-old vines submerging the alcohol and absorbing 60% new French oak; soft velvety tannins. Diam please."
Harvey Steiman, Wine Spectator "Rich, decadent and gooey in texture, this is layered with cherry, raspberry, peppermint and oak flavors that jostle one another for prominence. The finish roars on... Best after 2011."

A prestigious and internationally renowned region, it is not only home to some of the oldest vineyards and wineries in Australia but produces some of its most recognizable and sought-after brands. The region takes its name from the 'Barossa' ranges and the 'Valley' created by the North Para river, which connects the main towns of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch. The region is famous for the quality of its Shiraz.
