We can't promise that this Shiraz will take you all the way to Paradise, as its name suggests, but it we’d be disappointed if it didn’t take you to Cloud Eight at the very least. There's a luxurious opulence to the aromas that acts as an overture to a palate that is full of natural fruit richness, with plum and cassis galore and a textural gloss that helps the wine glide across your tastebuds on a magic carpet ride that takes you to your happy place. It's yet another wine that reflects the character of its winemaker, the open, generous and effusive Charles Melton. 14.5% alc.

Press review:

The Australian Wine Companion: “One of the great wines of the Barossa Valley, not just because of its quality, but also its individuality of style. It is traditionally destemmed, plunged and pumped over, the oak providing the X-factor (plus high quality fruit). American oak is sent to France for 3 years air drying, then coopered using the boiling water method to soften the staves for bending, and only once half-made does it receive any fire toasting. Dargaud and Jaegle are the masters. Just relax and let the glorious black fruits sweep you away.” 97 points
