Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts Vinous
- Bright purple. Aromas of black currant, cherry preserves, vanilla and licorice, accompanied by smoke and floral accents that build in the glass. Deeply concentrated yet nervy on the palate, offering juicy black and blue fruit flavors that show excellent clarity and spicy back-end lift. Finishes smooth, floral and impressively long, displaying a hint of cola and fine-grained, harmonious tannins. The blend of power and elegance here is pretty compelling. -- Josh Raynolds

91 pts Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate (LPB)
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Shiraz Basket Pressed has a waft of cedar poking through on the nose over a core of ripe black cherries, cassis and mocha, plus wafts of licorice and cloves. Very big, rich, full-bodied and opulent in the mouth, the oak really needs time to integrate, yet the firm, ripe structure and concentration suggestion this is built for the long-haul.

Winemaker Notes

It is our philosophy that all quality wine starts in the vineyard. The Barossa fruit we use is always very low yielding and produces highly concentrated flavours and aromas. We use traditional winemaking methods including open fermentation, extended maceration and basket pressing - we feel our wines display our uncompromising pursuit of excellence.
