Ulithorne McLaren Vale Avitus Shiraz 2016
"93% shiraz, 7% cabernet sauvignon from the same vineyard, open-fermented, hand-plunged, matured in new and used French oak for 18 months. A very smart wine, perfectly weighted and textured black fruits and a slick wave of regional chocolate, the tannins perfect. This beautiful wine deserves every penny of its price."
James Halliday, Hallidays Wine Companion. 96/100
"Deep, dark, rich red/purple colour, with an appealing bouquet of dark chocolate-coated blackberries and black cherries, subtly laced with dried herbs. The wine is full-bodied and rich, soft and rounded but possessing abundant tannins, the finish dry, cleansing and long. Very attractive shiraz, already approachable but also cellarworthy."
Huon Hooke, The Wine Review. 93/100
