Already rated 93/100 by wine critic James Halliday our 2010 Silent Showman Shiraz has just been awarded 5 stars by Winestate Magazine and “Top in Class” at the annual Central & Western Victoria tasting. As our volumes are extremely limited this wine is only available online and in our Cellar Door. Similar in style to the 2008 which sold out in record time this wine is dense purple with fragrant mocha, blackberry and licorice aromas and dark berry fruits, chocolate and spice through the palate. A parcel of this wine was barrel fermented in new American and French oak barriques to creating incredible complexity with plump ripe tannins providing a soft rounded structure. Early bottling has captured these characters, and bottling under screw cap means this wine will retain its freshness for many years to come.
“A wine as big and rich as this demands red meat. Marinate and serve it chargrilled with a red -wine sauce and you’re onto a winner .”
