Reviews of the 2013 vintage included below;

"Clare Valley. American oak. Shiraz. Released as a four-year-old, at $17. It’s toasty and malty, blackberried and coffeed, with saltbush and toffee-like nuances. A sprinkle of saltbush too. Truth is that it has the sweet, ripe fruit and the complement of oak to keep most red wine drinkers happy, at a modest price. Rated: 89 Points Tasted: Sep17 Alcohol: 14.5% Price: $17 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2017 - 2022" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.

"This wine has lifted violet and raspberry fruit bouquet with nuances of oak, pepper and spices. It is rounded and full bodied with soft tannins and dark cherry and ruby berries." - Mr Mick Wines.

Description: For many years Clare Valley Shiraz has captivated wine enthusiasts with its power and elegant synergism. This wine emulates just that style, graceful yet flavoursome, gentle enough to enjoy on its own or great with a diverse range of food. Lifted violet and raspberry fruit bouquet leads the nose with nuances of vanilla oak flavour due to American oak maturation. the palate is rounded and medium bodied with silky tannins and dark cherry and ripe berries with a hint of herb and spice..

Winemaking Notes: Clare Valley Shiraz, fermented for a week with its skins using a gentle pump-over regime, was then gently pressed, with the softer pressings returned to this blend. Heavy pressings were kept separate to minimise hard, drying tannins. The wine was then matured using predominately American oak for 24 months before fining, filtration, further tank maturation and bottling.

It is suitable for drinking anytime from the present to ten years of age, and will complement all red meat cuisine.
