2017 'Celtic Farm Shiraz Cabernet
James Halliday 93pts
Deep crimson-purple: combinations of some or all of these varieties have always prospered in the Clare Valley, Wendouree and Leasingham Bin 56 being examples. This ticks the boxes set by those great wines. Deep crimson-purple, red and black berry fruits hold hands, encouraged by ripe tannins. 93/100 points."James Halliday, The Wine Companion
Bright red with perfumed aromatics of fresh plums, red fruits with hints of bayleaf and thyme. A long and seductive palate showing why these two varieties marry so well. The Shiraz provides the sweetness and red berry fruits with a plush and velvety mid palate. The Cabernet adding the granular tannin structure and long savoury finish of green olive and bayleaf. Oak plays a supporting role adding texture and spice.
