(2017) Made in an Amarone style, from 45-year-old vines, the grapes dried for 6 to 7 weeks. Smoky, tight, blue-black fruit with an intensity and a touch of prune, but absolutely not stewed, it's the ripe juiciness that comes through. Tight and black into the finish.
(2017) Subtle graphite and pencil shaving fragrance to taut, glossy and ripe black fruit, a touch of cocoa but really the cherry freshness defines this, the savoury aspect is delicious and again a natural freshness.
(2017) Much darker, sweeter, plummier than the Battle of Bosworth, with a richness and sweetness, but still has the more perfumed, more elegant character. There's a medium bodied elegance on the palate too - fresh again, more gloss, but a similar brightness.
(2017) From a vineyard that once went into Grange. Hugely lifted nose, so dusty. Such an intense liquorice and Parma violet-touched character, very pure. Gorgeous sweet fruit, a touch of chocolate and creaminess of high quality French oak. Delicious and very long, smooth and balanced for ageing.
(2017) Smooth chocolate-rich nose, but there's a Sandalwood exoticism, and sweet black fruit intensity and richness. The palate has a lovely natural concentration and feeling of black fruit purity.
(2017) Tight, chocolaty plush, a weight of blue/black fruit on the nose and then a flood of the same on the palate: depths of fruit but such elegance too with a balanced finish. From the organic and biodynamic Warboys Vineyard planted in 1948.
(2017) Sweet, rich hugely dusty but a graphite and tobacco sheen and hint of green olive character that's lovely. For me, a beautifully pitched and defined Shiraz.
(2017) Creamy fudge like ripe fruit richness, with lots of sophisticated graphite and pencil shaving, a nice blend of plump, red, plummy fruit and tighter blackcurrant. Lovely length. Spicy.
(2017) So much more meaty and meat stocky that many of these McLaren Vale Shiraz', blood and liquorice, with an old polished wood quality. juicy and tight tannins, delicious lightness against the concentration with a real freshness to the rich, dry, savoury finish.
(2017) A little less fragrant, but a lovely solid and deliciously plummy and chocolate black fruit. A solid wine, but balanced.
