“A wine with unlimited exploration opportunities.” – The Australian Wine Companion, 97 Points and Special Value Wine

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. Drink now-2030.

Press review:

The Australian Wine Companion: “Aged on lees for 24 months in a 60/40% mix of American and French barriques, the American oak seasoned for 3 years in France and coopered using the immersion bending technique. The bouquet is exceptionally complex and fragrant, with spiced plum and oak translating to the equally complex medium-bodied palate. Its fundamental elegance is captured by the long palate and aftertaste. A wine with unlimited exploration opportunities.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine

Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin): “Judderingly rich and intense and dense. The very essence of Shiraz. Glowing dark fruit, velvet blueberries, black-pepper oil, concentrated ripeness with such a polish to the tannins that they're lustrous. As if he's distilled the soul of Barossa Shiraz and bottled it. Drink now-2027.” 17.5 points
