Magda Sienkiewicz "I’m always astonished by the generosity of Springflat Shiraz. In the glass, beautiful dark cherry colour. The nose is exuberant with plums, blackberries, dried fig and liquorice developing with aeration. The cascade of fruit is endless, expanding further on the palate with agen prunes and dried apricots. All textures flow seamlessly, which is impressive given the amount of ripe fruit packed in every mouthful. The 2004 Springflat entered a beautiful stage, where it has developed a good sense of maturity without losing its abundant fruit. It will continue to provide much drinking pleasure for the next 5-6 years."
Peter Robinson "Deep, intense aromas of bramble, plum and blueberry leading to fig and touches of sweet clove spice. The palate is concentrated and the depth continues giving flavours of bramble fruits, plum, prune, liquorice and tar. There is freshness on the palate and tannins are soft and fully integrated. The flavours of this wine are intensely powerful but in no way too much, the soft texture perfectly balances the depth and concentration and the finish lingers with consistent intensity."
