    This is unequivocally an even better edition of the Martin’s than we have seen previously, which is perhaps no surprise given it is a product of the 2018 vintage. Again, we see relatively low alcohol for a big Aussie red which, perhaps counterintuitively, allows the wine to appear as more fruit dense and concentrated than it might if it were half a degree or a full degree more ‘potent’. Fruits are blacks and blues, depth and length are superb, cedar and vanilla are a perfumed accompaniment to the fruit rich nose, and the tannins, polished, waxy and plentiful. The overall package, outstanding!

    96pts Kim Brebach
    The 2017 is a worthy successor to the exceptional 2015 and 2016 vintages which scored 96 and 97 points respectively while earning the following praise from wine writer Kim Brebach... 'Penfolds would charge $200 for a wine like this'. The 2017, from a slightly cooler vintage, adds savoury notes to the trademark intense black fruits and spice. The oak is high quality and beautifully integrated and tannins are elegant in both their sufficiency and application. This is good now and has a very bright future ahead.

    95pts Sam Kim, Gold Medal
    Rich, decadent and succulent. Milk chocolate, black and blueberries. Christmas cake spices, dark chocolate, great concentration and fine tannins to round things out. A superb drink.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Sam Kim
    A celebration of old vines - this intense cuvée is crafted from vines with an average age of 50+ years. Fruit was hand picked and open fermented, sitting on skins for 10 days prior to pressing and transfer into French oak. The oak is 40% new, the balance 3 y.o. – ensuring enough high-quality oak is present to season the intense fruit without pulling focus from its glory. We found, flint, cranberries, raspberries, cherries, plum, chocolate, black tea, spice and minerality. A stunner.
    Padthaway, SA
    95pts Sam Kim, 94pts Kim Brebach, 93pts Real Review
    This is a mighty big and seductive Shiraz, oozing black plums, cocoa, and charcuterie all served on a beautiful cedar platter. Excellent density of fruit. Robust yet silky fruits and plenty of tannin to finish. Not subtle, yet, nonetheless, smashing!
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts James Halliday, 91pts Nick Stock
    Vibrant and richly fruited, this is a lively yet slurpable beast. Plums, dark chocolate, cherries, beetroot, spice, pepper and charcuterie all competing for your attention. A cracker now and with 5-8 years ahead of it at least. Fruit is sourced from growers in the Barossa sub regions of Bethany, Vine Vale, Stonewell, Light Pass, Marananga & the Hallett Valley.
