Wine AdvocateFashioned from relatively young vines planted in limestone/slate soils at one of McLaren Vale's highest elevations, the 2004 Shiraz Krystina (100% Shiraz) was aged in primarily French oak (50% new). This riveting effort exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet, pure nose of cassis, black raspberries, crushed rocks, and smoky oak, impressive structure, a tremendous, multi-layered texture, and considerable stature, intensity, and length. It should drink well for a decade or more.

Robert Parker, October 2005
