95 Points - Peter Robinson "Despite the 10 years the colour remains a deep ruby. Concentrated aromas of blackcurrant, plum and black cherry lead to hints of saddle leather as the wine begins to develop tertiary aromas. There is some spirit present on the nose from the 15.5% of alcohol but it doesn’t dominate. This is not a spicy Shiraz. The palate is rich, deep and succulent and the tannins are fine lending support and structure to the rich fruit. Flavours of juicy plum and blackcurrant continue with toasted coconut from the oak leaving a sweetness to the finish and an overall creamy texture. There is no aggression to this wine, it is succulent and rich without being over powering and will continue to develop for several more years." Tasted 23 January 2019
92 Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com) "Shirvington’s 2007 Shiraz spent 14 months in 80% new, mostly American oak. It displays an excellent nose of cigar box, lavender, cocoa, black cherry, and blueberry. This leads to a full-bodied, dense, structured Shiraz which comes off as just a bit sinewy. Aside from that, it has plenty of savory fruit, good balance, and a lengthy finish. It will require 3-4 years of additional cellaring and should be in full bloom from 2013 to 2027."
