95 Points - James Halliday

Dense colour; it's a full-bodied version of a full-bodied Shadrach; it's not hard to guess why it hasn't been previously released, and even now it's barely ready. But its blackcurrant fruit is varietal, the tannins are balanced, and the oak is integrated.

92 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (RobertParker.com)

Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Shadrach has an enticing nose of blackcurrant cordial, menthol and cloves with hints of pencil shavings and beef drippings. Medium-bodied and densely packed with muscular fruit, it shows a solid frame of approachable, grainy tannins and refreshing acidity before finishing long and elegant.

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
