Medium to full red colour with a purple tint, the bouquet a mix of black fruits, earth and ironstone with suble spice notes. Intense, bright palate with freshness and intensity and drive. Elegant and powerful; very long finish.91 pts - Andrew Graham (Aus Wine Review)
Pemberton Shiraz. Best Shiraz yet for Silkwood! A slick of vanilla oak to start, but it settles into the wine as it goes, the style mid weight, lightly peppery and yet with sufficient ripeness. Pinot-esque weight, and save for the tannins you’d assume made like Pinot too. Lightly astringent tannins aren’t perfect, but this is good, firm, and savoury yet not un-generous. Best drinking: over the next maybe eight years. 17.5/20, 91/100.
