Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>20 months in new French oak imbued this wine at first with a creamy vanilla bouquet to complement the rich berry fruit, but now, after 4 years ageing, the sheer concentration of the wine is pushing the oak into the background, where it should be. Proprietor Dean Hewitson has a simple philosophy of selecting grapes from very old, well-sited vineyards, and the rationale behind this cuvée, first created in 1992, was to make a wine wholly evocative of the MacLaren Vale, renowned as a top-class source of premium Shiraz. There is a characteristic nose of blackberry with hints of chocolate and mocha; on the palate the wine is highly concentrated and multi-faceted, but never ponderous, and with the benefit of ageing the tannins have now softened and are velvety in texture. Do give it an hour in a decanter before serving as it will reveal more of itself by so doing; serve with full-bodied
