Classic Barossa shiraz bouquet highlighting creamy black fruits on the nose leaving a soft and round impression. Notes of vanilla smoke along with a touch of graphite and black olive grilled meats also appear. Classic barossa Shiraz on a medium weighted framework that highlights the smoke and black fruits. This is a sophisticated interpretation of what Barossa can be while still hewing to the richness that is typical of region s style. There s a soft finish hardly any tannin and the most deft acid levels to provide some elegance. Showing creamy textures with soft edges the finish showcases some lingering fruit on narrow tail that fades gently. A well made elegant soft edged shiraz that has juiciness without broad thick textures. Chuck Hayward.

Winemaker's Notes:

2008 was a hot summer and one of the earliest vintages on record. The 2008 Command shows exceptional fruit weight, with more time French oak than in the past. It will be a long lived wine!

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Shows lashings of chocolate, violet and delicious cedar Palate: Rich and generous, the wine has wondrous dark chocolate, plums and black pepper flavours that persist through to a fleshy finish. It is held together beautifully with refinement and amazing focus.
