James Halliday quotes from Australian Wine Companion
2018 edition – 2012 Reserve Shiraz Cabernet -93pts – A super generous wine with a profusion of blackberry and blackcurrant fruit opening the batting, met mid pitch by vanillan American oak and ripe tannins. It works well in a big bash way.
2012 edition -2009 Em’s Table Shiraz Organic Preservative Free Shiraz -90pts- blackberry, licorice, chocolate and vanilla are spun together on a fresh, light-medium bodied palate
2016 edition -2013 Em’s Table Shiraz Organic Preservative Free Shiraz -90pts- Awash with fresh, primary fruit flavour. Cherries, apples and plums. Excellent option for those looking to avoid SO2.
