Deep crimson. Classic ultra-fine Barossa Shiraz with intense blackberry mulberry praline aromas with underlying roasted chestnut/ roasted hazel nut, herb garden notes. Plush yet refined in style with deep set blackberry pastille mulberry fruits, underlying paneforte/roasted chestnut notes and plentiful velvety tannins. Finishes chocolaty firm with a zip of aniseed. Superb density, volume and freshness.

98 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Distinctive aromas of blackberry, Black Doris plum, dark chocolate and cedar on the nose with nuances of cake spice and floral. Superbly ripe and pure, with immense complexity, the wine exhibits exceptional depth and power, while remaining perfectly balanced by plush tannins. It’s substantial and brooding with a persistent refined finish. At its best: 2025 to 2047. 

93 Points - Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com
A very resolved and quite complex shiraz that has ripe red and dark-berry aromas, as well as a spicy thread that flows to the palate. The balance and completeness here is impressive. Drink or hold.

95 Points - Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate
"In contrast to the 2016 Everest, CT's 2017 The Everest Shiraz is sourced from 100-year-old plantings in Vine Vale and Marananga. Matured in mostly French oak (86%) for 18 months, then in bottle for another two years prior to release, it's ready to drink now for its massive fruit and supple tannins. Hints of vanilla, cedar and maple syrup accent plums, blackberries and charred beef, while the finish is long and mouthwatering. 112 cases produced. Drink Date: 2021 - 2035"
