Machine-harvested, destemmed, open-fermented with cultured yeast, matured for 20 months in French oak (50% new). Tasting Revelation, Attunga, Crowhurst Reserve, Oracle and this wine next to each other lays out the differences of flavour and structure in high relief - the sheer power of this full-bodied group might disguise some of the differences if tasted separately. Mind you, this wine does shriek McLaren Vale with its dark chocolate and the glossy texture of its superabundant fruits. It's the easiest to appreciate now, and will develop most quickly, all things being relative. 96 points, Wine Companion.
