99 Points & #3 Top 100 Wines of 2018 Nick Stock for James Suckling
97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday

A Single block Shiraz from 80-year-old vines. At the end of Amery Rd sits a beautiful 80 acre property, established in the late 19th Century. The vineyards are surrounded by native bush land and nestled in the forest, an important factor in moderating the climate. Home to three dierent soil types and a micro-climate that gives this property a unique geological and viticultural foot print

“A slightly firmer and more fragrant style to the ultra-rich DC Block bottling of the same vintage. This has impressive depth and concentration. Aromas are in the spectrum of dark, red and purple berries. There is an astutely handled, spicy oak influence courtesy of the 2700-liter French oak vats. The palate carries on with a wealth of fine, long and sleek tannins, which deliver a fresh plum-stone finish.” – 99 Points & #3 Top 100 Wines of 2018 Nick Stock for James Suckling

“Identical vinification to that of DC Block except picking 4 days later on 14 Feb, yet at a lower alcohol of 13.2% and a slightly brighter crimson-purple colour reflecting the higher acidity (6.5g/l versus 5.6g/l). These differences strike home on the medium-bodied palate, which is exceptionally fresh and vibrant, savoury and laced with fine-grained tannins. A striking example of terroir at work, the two wines joined at the hip bottled on the same day, yet so different.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine James Halliday
