Huon Hooke "Deep, bold, bright and youthful purple-red colour, with a dominant coconut/vanilla bouquet that suggests generous use of oak. A solid cloak of dark chocolate and mocha. The palate has quite drying tannins. Full bodied, dense and hearty. A big mouthful of shiraz. I'd give it a bit more time for the oak to mellow."

Erin Larkin "There is some semblence of it on the very middle palate, however is goes under again as the wave of oak washes over it through the finish. Due to its upbringing, wine will likely age slowly." (2016 vintage)

QWine "Black fruits, coffee liqueur, handfuls of cedar come rushing. Seeing 28 months in new and second use American oak, it's dense, dark and goes deep - very deep. Dark chocolate gets its moment to shine late with a fine hum of spices. There is plenty of comfort here, don't worry about that. It's fire pit wine on a cool night. Fine dusty tannins coat the mouth drying out ever so slowly before urging for another sip. It's not hard to oblige. A keeper, longevity is in its veins." (2016 vintage)

Huon Hooke "Deep, dark, brick-red to ruby colours, with a mocha, dark chocolate and earthy note, which almost suggests slight forward development, the palate confirming that it is a little lacking vitality. It has richness and concentration, but is not developing in a way that suggests further cellaring. It's good drinking now." (2014 vintage)

Qwine "Dense and generous......... A fab Shiraz from South Australia...There's plenty of interest courtesy of clove, dark chocolate, charred oak, licks of vanilla and fruit cake. Some more air to breathe and touches of cedar are prominent. A generous wine with smooth feels and a long finish - top stuff." (2013 vintage)

Winestate "A full bodied maturing shiraz with a focus of plums, olives, sweetness and tarry notes." (2013 vintage)

The Winemaker "Hints of dark chocolate and vanilla aromas greet you in the glass. This develops into dark berry fruits and concentrated plum fruits. The palate is full and luscious with good palate weight and a nice dusting of oak. The smooth but present tannin completes this wine with power and prestige. Will complex and age well over the next 10 years." (2013 Vintage)

The wine was aged for 28 months in new American & Second Use French, tightly grained, barrels.

Patrick's of Coonawarra was founded by Patrick Tocaciu; one of Australia's leading wine (and AFL football) figures. Patrick's reputation for producing exceptional wine earned him many international accolades for the major labels he worked as Chief Winemaker, including; Tollana, Penfolds, and Hollick Wines. Patrick's distinguished reputation continued with the establishment of his own Patrick of Coonawarra Estate label. The wines are built on the solid foundation of extensive estate vineyards: 36 hectares in Coonawarra and 42 hectares in Wrattonbully. The Wrattonbully plantings contain shiraz, sauvignon blanc, and some of the riesling. All of the cabernet is grown in Coonawarra. The Estate is now managed by his eonologist son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.

Coonawarra is the most important wine region within South Australia, credited with producing some of the best red wines in the entire country, and often described as Australia's most famous terroir. .

Shiraz, also known as Syrah is a popular red wine. Though the spiritual homeland of this red grape is France, Syrah has been planted throughout the world to great success. It expresses itself differently depending on the climate, soil and regional style.

Syrah is typically bold and full-bodied, with aromatic notes of smoke, black fruit and pepper spice. Stylistically, it can be round and fruity, or dense and tannic. And in warmer New World regions like Australia, Syrah is most often be called Shiraz.

Winemakers who work in cooler-climate growing regions, both in the Old World and New World, tend to call their wines Syrah. The most famous examples come from the northern Rhône Valley of France, notably Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. In the New World, in regions like Sonoma Coast, California; Yarra Valley, Australia; and parts of Chile, the wines are called Syrah because they emulate the leaner, acid-driven, savory styles of the Old World French classics.

Shiraz tends to come from warmer growing climates, namely the South Australian regions of Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills. Stylistically, these wines are lush, fruit-forward examples that embody the warmer, sunnier climate. Shiraz is so important to Australian viticulture that it is the most planted grape variety in the majority of Australian vineyards and has become virtually synonymous with the country's wine regions, and in particular the Barossa Valley.
