Premium Wines  |  2010 Shiraz

Vintage Notes:

2010 was a spectacular year-one of the best of the decade. After a few years of heat waves and droughts, 2010 was perfect with a mild growing season, rain at all the right times and no heat shocks.

Reviews

  • WBM, Mike Bennie, March 2013

    Such a joyous expression of McLaren Vale Shiraz here. A touch of briney acidity freshening it, but a cavalcade of black and red berry fruit, savoury, suede tannins, shiny cedary oak and glossy texture surrounding. Well done. 92 pts

  • Tony Love, Jan 2013- "12 Wines That Define Our Nation"

     "There's nothing more Australian than a big, generous shiraz and the joy here is there's no mucking about. It's dark plum and blackberry-flavoured juice with the right amount of oak and a little smattering of spice and pepper. All the good things that big, sun-shiny shiraz can be. Rating: 4 out of 5 stars 'A cut above'"
