"Good colour; a stylish Barossa Valley shiraz that presents its blackberry, plum and fine spices in a supple, medium-bodied palate, tannins and oak both playing valuable support roles. Will go the distance without flinching."

"The brief is to produce a “traditional, full-bodied” Barossa shiraz that can be consumed young. It sure delivers on the brief. The fruit is dark, the fruit is juicy, the fruit had body and it’s all stack up-front. Tuck in. Coal and blackberry, saltbush and roasted, toasted, nut-like notes. There’s almost a slight char to this wine, in a positive sense. It drinks a treat."
"A very good friend of mine challenged me to produce a traditional, full-bodied Barossa Valley wine with the only criteria that it could be drunk young at lunch or dinner and did not stray from my fundamental wine making philosophies. French oak, fine grained tannins, balance, clear fruit expression! Those who know me well know that I just love a good challenge!” - Dean Hewitson.
"Appearance: Deep crimson red with a purple hue.
Aroma: Red and black forest berries. French oak spice and richness.
Palate: Explosive red berries warm texture. Velvety soft tannins. Fresh acidity on the finish." - Winery
