Premium Wines | 2002 Shiraz
Philip White, The Advertiser, 93 points
As years go, it's increasingly obvious that 2002 was an astounding year for McLaren Vale reds. And the years have certainly gone by at Oliver's. They started in 1841; it's our sixth oldest brand. Cooking chocolate, coffee beans and, dare I say, black olives simmer away un the complex, velvety soup. Perfect with a Jeavon's pizza with black olives.

Lifted spice, rum & rasin, dark chocolates and licorice.
This wine speaks of the brilliance of the 2002 vintage in McLaren Vale. Coating tannins, excellent length, concentrated and complex palate - plums, spice and dark fruits abound.
