"Points for smoothness and for integration of fruit and oak. It tastes of dark, toasty plums, licorice and choc mint though what you notice most, perhaps, is the smoothness of the ride."

 

Decanter World Wine Awards 2014

The Basket Case Shiraz 2012

Silver Medal

 

"Wonderful ripe red fruits and black pepper layered with mint and chocolate. A plump and succulent palate with a gorgeous lift of acidity and complex tannins followed by a very long and spicy finish"

"Raspberry pie, brown spices, boysenberry and subtle sawn wood perfume. It's medium bodied and pretty perky with an almost apple tang to the acidity, gently chalky tannin and juicy mixed berries and spice on the finish. Feels earlier picked for freshness and perfume, which is no bad thing."

"Balanced and elegant, with nice oak and zesty acidity. Ripe and rich, with a mature nose of spices and herbs, leading to a distinguished balanced palate, medium body and powdery tannins"
