Reserve | 2004 HJ Reserve Shiraz
Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, Oct 2007, 95 Points
The 2004 Shiraz “HJ Reserve” was aged for 2 years in 100% new French oak. It was sourced from the estates 65 year old vineyard with a minuscule yield of one tonne per acre. Opaque purple, it has an enticing bouquet of toasty oak, smoke, saddle leather, espresso, mocha, blueberry & blackberry liquor. Medium to full-bodied and opulent, the wine has super-succulent black and blue fruit flavours, well-concealed tannins and a very long, 60 second finish. Because of its superb balance, it will evolve for at least a decade and provide pleasure through 2030. However, for those unable to delay gratification, it will make a great companion to a giant slab of prime rib

Deep, dark maroon.
Intense mulberry and dark Belgian chocolate pepper and spice nuances.
Subtle and elegant fine grained tannins dominate the mouthfeel of this wine-silky and long. The fruit is intense and rich. The balance and complexity of this wine is fabulous.
100% new French Oak
