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.
2015 TERRA ROSSA SHIRAZ REVIEWS
95 POINTS - HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION 2018
Really slick, with a core of dark fruit bound by liquorice, eucalypt, choc-mint and inky notes; slips into overdrive to cruise alone a glossy palate with the oak seamlessly integrated. Good tannin structure and a persistent finish.
92+ POINTS - CAMPBELL MATTINSON
It’s polished and soft and offers plenty of juicy fruit flavour. Mint, black cherry, licorice and peppercorn flavours flow amiably through the palate and unencumbered out through the finish. Excellent momentum from start to finish. Clean as a whistle and well powered. You can drink it now, or later, it’s equally well suited.
90 POINTS - HUON HOOKE
Deep, saturated purple colour. The bouquet is minty, ginger-like and lifted, fragrant and eucalyptus-tinged. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rather firm and taut and backward, and needs time to build complexity, and soften its tannins - although it's approachable now. Very good.
