Rated 94 points by James Halliday: "French oak is a major contributor to the bouquet and palate of the wine (more than expected from 35% new), but there is a wealth of red and black cherry and blueberry fruit, and the texture and weight is impeccable, fresh acidity a further boon."

Background

Block 9 Shiraz was handpicked then de-stemmedcrushed into open fermenters and inoculated. The ferments were pumped over with aeration three times a day; temperature was held around 25°C. The wine was then pressed to new and used French Oak barrels for its Malo-lactic fermentation, allowing a soft integration of the grape and oak tannins. The wine was blended, fined with egg whites and bottled after 18 months barrel maturation and further aged in bottle before release.
