Expert Reviews

Rating 95 - Huone Hooke, Sydney Morning Herald - Good Living, 29th Sept 2009

The Zema family and winemaker Greg Clayfield have given this a little extra time in bottle, which has enhanced its drinking appeal. Coonawarra Shiraz needs to be fully ripe and this is a healthy 15.5% alc, so beware. But its not porty or jammy; instead it smells appealing of licorice and aniseed, spices and dark plums, with a terrific lushness to the fruit on the palate. Very deep and generous, still bright and alive and promising to live on for many years, it's at once vibrant and luxurious. Sealed with a ProCork. Drink now to 12 years - plus.

Food: Hard cheeses, especially aged ones; parmesan, cheddar, Beaufort, Comte, Gruyere.
