Awards, Reviews and other Notes

94 pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 2008
(from a vineyard planted in 1843) Bright ruby. Explosively perfumed bouquet combines boysenberry, potpourri, minerals and fresh flowers; this could scent a room. Fleshy dark berry fruit demonstrates liqueur-like depth and richness without coming across as sweet, and vibrant minerality helps to extend the flavors. The finish refuses to let up, eventually leaving vibrant red and dark berries and zesty minerals in its wake.
94 pts Wine Advocate Issue #173 Oct 2007
The 2005 Shiraz “1843 Freedom” comes from a dry-grown vineyard planted in 1843 which is believed to be the oldest surviving pre-phylloxera Shiraz vines in Australia. The wine was aged for 24 months in 70% new French oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Purple-colored, it gives up a sexy perfume of pain grille, smoke, violets, blueberry, and blackberry liqueur. Surprisingly light on its feet, the wine is full-flavored, opulent, and very long. Give it 5-7 years to blossom fully and drink this hedonistic effort through 2025.
