GOLD MEDAL Berlin Wine Trophy 2019
96 POINTS Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

This is stunning; the richly expressed bouquet shows blackberry, dark plum, vanillin oak, cocoa and toasted spice characters, followed by a sumptuous palate that is superbly weighted and expansive. It is powerfully graceful, loaded with delicious flavours. At its best: now to 2030. AU$75.00.

95 POINTS Huon Hooke, The Real Review

Good depth of bright red/purple colour. Rich, spicy black plum bouquet, the palate lavish, full-bodied and spicy with a light sprinkling of oak. It's very full-bodied, rich, deep and concentrated, with lovely flavour and balance. Tannins are ample and supple. Sweetly ripe, almost decadent, flavour.
Drink 2019 to 2034

The Barossa Old Vine Charter was instituted to register vineyards by age, so that older vines could be preserved, retained and promoted. The grapes for this wine come from just two small vineyards, one in the sub-region of Nuriootpa that lies on sandy loams and alluvial clays and the other in Vine Vale, a sub-region of the Barossa that lies on very deep sandy soils over clay. These low yielding “Old Vines” were planted between 1960 and 1961 and are now fully matured with root structure and trunk thickness that encourages diversity of flavour and character.
