99 Points - Stuart McCloskey “Great Hermitage in the guise of an Australian Shiraz. Explosive aromas of chocolate, smoked game, warm earth and saddle leather. The palate is silky sweet, exquisitely balanced, sensuous, with melting tannins. If I had to be succinct, flawless and polished to perfection. More feminine than I recall with animally fruit emerging with more time in the glass as does olive tapenade and garrigue. Almost perfect, highly addictive and a wine to make you fall in love with Australian Shiraz all over again. In short, I am at a loss for words. One to cherish!” Decanted for 2-3 hours and served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware"
Decanter Magazine "Songlines has a marvellous intensity of 100 year old Shiraz fruit, with none of the heaviness of some Australian Icon wines, a superb wine, perhaps the Latour of the McLaren Vale.”
