Peter Robinson "A complex nose that starts quite earthy but with a little aeration opens to reveal aromas of blackberry, damson and plum with a little stewed red current and fig in the background and a wonderful, chocolatey warmth. The palate offers more black fruits with fig and chocolate becoming more prominent. The texture is supple but the acidity remains supportive, there is a little alcohol heat but the overall balance and texture of this wine is almost soothing." Tasted 29th Jan 2019

'Archetypal yet restrained McLaren Vale style; a melange of black fruits and dark chocolate; silky tannins, good mouthfeel.'
A deep, dark almost opaque black plum red with purple tinges. From one of the most outstanding vintages the 2002 undercover shiraz bouquet is a fruit 'elixir'. Concentrated blackberries, plums, followed by big chocolaty/spicy flavours. Soft, supple mouthfeel with lingering juicy fruit balanced by fine grained oak tannin with a persistent long finish.
