James Halliday Tasted 2005 Rating 94
Dense purple-red; medium to full-bodied; rich, supple, velvety, round and fleshy plum and blackberry fruit; ripe tannins.
Ralph Kyte-Powell Age Epicure 5-stars
This deeply concentrated, glass-staining Heathcote region Shiraz has gorgeously lush blackberry and spiced plum fruit with smooth, dense texture, great depth and balanced supporting ripe tannins. Great.
Paddy Kendlar Herald Sun Rating -Unbeatable.
…lovely rich fruit flavour ever-so-neatly packed within a perfectly poised palate. The texture is smooth and supple and the effect totally satisfying….drinking superbly now but will develop into an absolute cracker.
…a powerhouse of a wine with great complexity. Black, brooding and inky with notes of spice, liquorice and ripe plum and black cherry. The palate has an army of very fine tannins marching through the plush fruit, bringing definition and order. Finely balanced, enormously deep with a rush of fruit on the finish… also graceful. Has years ahead of it.

A magnificent Heathcote Shiraz… a great follow on from the 2002. Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Superb perfumed nose of violets, blackberry juice and spice followed by a touch of new leather showing strong varietal character. The palate is explosive, concentrated and classic Heathcote. Flavours of liquorice, cherry and black pepper encase the mouth. Excellent weight and depth. Very long aftertaste of spice, blackberry, plum, violet infusions and liquorice.

Inky darkness, black olive brine, herbal thyme and rhubarb. Shows a warm vintage – vanilla oak – holds tight. This will always be a big wine. Palate shows much more lively acidity and tannin structure – a very generous mouth-feel and wonderful flavour aroma
