97% Shiraz, 3% Viognier. All three 2015 reds have a sense of controlled power and depth, from the almost faultless vintage, with the Shiraz continuing to justify our decision to replant it in 1999. Beautifully controlled, quite pure and pretty, the new vintage is laden with aromas of blueberry, cherry, white pepper and Moroccan spice. Hints of liquorice, treacle, salumi and graphite add further interest to a suave and energetic nose. On the palate, it’s all supple spice and savoury generosity to start with; then the mid-palate builds – serious, but in perfect proportion, framing the deep, cool, sappy and savoury fruit as it flows confidently through this fresh and vibrant shiraz. A wine of real presence and a fitting testament to both site and vintage. Drink for 8-10 years, or more. SANDRA DE PURY

Excellent dark purple hue, thanks to a splash of viognier. It's a glorious, perfectly pitched cool climate shiraz with a lot packed into it, yet retains an elegance on its medium-bodied palate. Heady aromas of dark and red fruits, black pepper, some pine needles/garrigue notes and a fleck of charry-wood spices from the otherwise integrated oak. There's a suppleness, juiciness on the palate, and a savoury note that tempers the fruit, the tannins fine and detailed with the acidity, like a refreshing squirt of raspberry juice. 95 points JAMES HALLIDAY
