James Halliday ~ "....a wonderfully expressive wine showing true depth of Barossa character with red and black fruits entwined seamlessly and complemented by an array of complex aromas of tar, chocolate and turned earth; the palate is dense and rich, but there is a lightness that belies the 15.5% alcohol; long, supple and seamless."
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." (2005 vintage)
The Barossa Valley is an extremely important wine-producing region within the Barossa zone of South Australia. 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.
