Gold - Mundus Vini Grand International Wine Award94pts- Winestate World's Greatest Shiraz/Syrah XVII Wine Show
A very young but impressive shiraz with a spicy mulberry bouquet with hints of plums and a tight elegant palate.90pts- Angus Hughson Wine Pilot
This is a cracking Shiraz from Highgate and one of the best yet under this label. Opaque ruby in colour, it is a rich and generously styled South Australian Shiraz with lashings of blueberry and mulberry, with touches of new leather and liquorice plus sweet oak couched in behind. There is then quite serious upfront impact before diving into a rich bed of sweet dark fruit flavours with a gentle jamminess. It is generally soft and cuddly however also has supple tannins which provide an adequate backbone which will keep this wine singing for some years to come.
