Sourced from select vineyards in the Barossa Valley, the grapes for this wine were crushed and fermented in open top fermenters with regular pump overs, 3 times daily during peak fermentation to extract color and tannin. Following 7 to 21 days of maceration the wine was racked to barrel. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel where it aged 14 months in 26% new French oak hogsheads. Bottled with minimal fining and no filtration it's made to age 5-10 years or more. James Haliday of the Australian Wine Companion scored it 94 points saying "Spotlessly clean aromas; abundant ripe, fleshy black fruits in a plum and blackberry spectrum; soft tannins, good oak."

The 2005 Shiraz “Bad Impersonator” was sourced from a single vineyard and aged in French oak, 20% new. It offers a bouquet of cedar, spice box, pepper, clove, and blueberry. This leads to a layered wine with excellent depth, silky tannins, fine balance and even some elegance. Drink this lengthy, fruit-filled wine over the next 6 years.
