"Estate fruit, 50% whole berries, a portion of whole bunches, wild ferment and aged in French oak 25% new for 17 months. Excellent dark-purple hue; succulent and velvety texture with some power to the chiselled tannins, savoury yet pristine fruit the key."

"Just another $30 McLaren Vale Shiraz? Absolutely not. This is profoundly exciting, another masterpiece from Peter Fraser. It's spicy, textured, with a rainbow of dark fruit flavours -- bloody gorgeous."

"A highly captivating wine with a perfect balance between the sweet and the savoury. Sourced from established vines, ranging in age from 19 - 23 years, it is a shiraz with excellent fruit depth. There is a snappy character to the fruit on the front palate followed by impressive back palate concentration and length. Although it can be enjoyed now, it will be even better with some time in the cellar. A sophisticated, finely-crafted wine. Highly recommended."

"Wild ferment, whole bunches, whole berries, classy oak but only where it’s needed... That beautiful sweet fruit. That texture like silk. That perfect integration of plum-shot fruit and posh, cedar-like oak. It smells, taste and feels pure, fine-grained and terrific, every step of the way."

"From six estate blocks, 75% destemmed, every berry optically scrutinised by a very expensive piece of equipment that happily deals with any disease or other damage (say botrytis). Wild yeast-open fermented, plunged, 14 months in French oak (20% new). The pure singularity of this certified biodynamic wine has a different face to its King's Wood sibling. It relentlessly captures the senses with its dark spiced fruits, the aftertaste slowly diminishing."

"Beautiful expression of shiraz. Just so effortless. One sip and you just know. Black berried fruits, spices here and there, ultra-fine tannin, impressive length. Great value in the overall scheme. Class written all over it."

"This is an utterly mesmerising and compelling shiraz. Divine, concentrated dark fruit with very gentle spice. Classically-structured and not overdone in any way. Lively acidity and plentiful integrated tannin. An absolute steal at this price. Fabulous."

"From six estate blocks, 50% on sand, 50% ironstone. Destemmed and mechanically sorted whole berries and 20% whole bunches open-fermented with a splash of viognier, 10 months in French oak (20% new). Dark fruits with earth, chocolate and licorice nuances. Sensational price."

"Deep, bright red/purple colour. Fresh and clean on the nose, with berries, cherries and spices to sniff. Really lovely aromas and flavours, understated and still evolving. The palate is fine and long with supple tannins and great harmony. A superb glass of shiraz."
