Fruit for this wine is sourced from two blocks of mature Shiraz vines grown on the rich red soils at the northern end of Coonawarra, approximately six kilometres north of the Coonawarra Store.
The dry nature of this area produces low-yielding vines where the fruit is highly concentrated in flavour, resulting in vibrant and elegant styles of wines.
2014 TERRA ROSSA SHIRAZ REVIEWS
95 POINTS - JAMES HALLIDAY
Incredibly fine and smooth. It’s as if everything has been turned to high gloss. Peppermint, chocolate and ripe plum flavours flood the palate before extending comfortably out through the finish. Ripe, bright and substantial, it also has just enough underlying complexity to keep it from ever seeming simple.
93+ POINTS - CAMPBELL MATTINSON
A mouthful of shiraz out of Coonawarra.
Significant choc-mint aromas and flavours with a wealth of roasted plum and blackberry swooshing in to support. It makes a simple pitch – lots of dark fruit flavour with a good smear of oak – but has enough variety to its flavour to make it seem complex enough. It feels smooth, it tastes rich and it finishes the job on the finish.
