    2015 Estate Shiraz – VinoNotebook (June 2019)

    Plastered with little gold stickers from both Australia and overseas. Has the juxtaposition of previous vintages with savoury earthy and floral elements battling out over toasty, drinking chocolate sweetness. Black olive slickness with black pepper spice and meaty flesh. The palate a focused exposition of slick cool blue/black fruit with a tight knit tannin structure. Enveloped by mocha and spice, it finishes bright and juicy. Complex, yet approachable.

    2015 Estate Shiraz – Gourmet Traveller WINE’s 100 Top New Release Wines (June 2019)

    An elegant, spicy, cool-climate shiraz. There are blackberry, vanilla and chocolate notes to add to the spices. It’s medium-to-full bodied, with lush fruit sweetness in the centre, finished with firm but balanced tannins. It’s already very approachable.

    95 Points

    2015 Estate Shiraz – Nick Butler (May 2019)

    Dense purple colour with crimson edges – remarkably youthful. Raspberries, vanillin oak, briars and berry compote. Concentrated and refined. Oak is clearly present, though the fruit should wine the battle. Delicious.

    2015 Estate Shiraz – John Rozentals (May 2019)

    Wow, what a dry red from the rapidly emerging Canberra district this is. Winemaker Graeme Shaw finds it difficult to pick a favourite between this and the Vineyard Estate Cabernet, which I reviewed in my previous column but I’ll always lean shiraz-wards because of the rich, soft flavours.

    2015 Estate Shiraz – Qwine (May 2019)

    A terrific Shiraz from the Canberra district.

    Like a big ball of fruit rolling about in your mouth, there’s some beautiful momentum behind this wine. Soft black fruits, clove, flashes of mint all wrapped up in a parcel of fine spices. The complexity and balance delivered are impressive with those spices coating the mouth with a delicate caress and lingering much longer than expected. A lovely expression of cool climate Shiraz.

    2015 Estate Shiraz – Huon Hooke (April 2019)

    Deep, youthful red/purple colour, with a bright blackberry, vanilla and chocolate bouquet, spicy later. The wine is medium to full-bodied, fruit-sweet and lush, filled with succulent gently spicy flavour and finishing with firm but balanced tannins. The oak is evident at this stage but it meshes nicely with the spices. A lovely wine and very approachable.

    Warren Gibson
    Spicy and attractive. Floral. Attractive spicy complexity on the palate with some suggestion of sweetness. Nice synergy with the beef

    Meg Brodtmann
    Complex nose with jammy plum, rosemary, sweet spice and herbal notes. Very meaty on the palate with roast lamb and rosemary, firm tannins and some stewed mulberry. A very young wine that finishes slightly hot. A pretty neutral match with the food.

    Dr Ken Dobler
    Attractive deep red crimson colour. Effusive aromas of mulberry and spiced plum. Superb rich plum pudding on the palate which is not clumsy or overdone, has tremendous persistence of flavour. Wonderfully complex wine with balanced oak and fruit influences that marries beautifully with food.

    Brent Marris
    Lovely rich plum and ripe berry fruit nose with hints of pepper and rich earthy notes on the palate. Balanced tannins with lovely integrated oak. Hints of savoury notes on the finish. This wine works in well with the beef cheeks. Has a lovely lifted element coming through of savoury and sweet spice.

    Ying Tan
    Fresh crushed redberries, touch of cracked black pepper on nose. Full dry, creamy oak entry followed by redberries, finely textured tannins. Dry ripe creamy finish. Balanced, straightforward, dominated by oak. Long. Beef Cheek brings out sweetness fruit, tones down oakiness.

    Sue Bastian
    Magenta. Intense dark fruit and butter menthol low to mod complex. Soft, round with dark fruit, well constructed, a good commercial style. Match makes the wine look more mentholly and bit bitter.
