Gold Medal - Berlin Wine Trophy 2021

93 Point - Andrew Caillard MW
"Deep crimson. Fresh dark cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate aromas with herb garden liquorice notes. Buoyant fruit driven style with abundant dark cherry blackberry dark berry flavours, plentiful fine chalky/ chocolaty tannins, underlying roasted walnut notes and persistent long acidity. Finishes crispy firm with plentiful sweet red liquorice/ aniseed/ dark fruits. Drink Now – 2026"

96 Points - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Perfumed and inviting, the stunning bouquet reveals mixed berry compote, dark cocoa, olive and cedary oak characters, followed by a sumptuous palate displaying plush mouthfeel and velvety tannins. Magnificently composed and styled with a persistent gratifying finish. At its best: 2024 to 2039."

93 Point - Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
"Shiraz sourced from the western subregion of Marananga, aged in oak for 18 months. Lifted aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blood plum with hints of fruitcake spice, dark chocolate, roasting meats, cocoa powder, cedar and earth. Opulent and rich with black fruit and fruitcake notes, great fruit weight, long-chain tannins and just a tweak of dried herbs on the finish."

Marananga, centred in the North West quadrant of the Barossa provides some of the Valley’s most powerful wines. The red brown clay loam soils with schists and siltstone yield flavours of jam and fruitcake, cardamom, blueberry fruits, cocoa powder with an undercurrent of roasted meats and crackling. To ensure the unique character of this sub region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine. Aging in the finest quality oak for 18 months and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.
