Notes Sourced from The Rewards of Patience - Fifth Edition (2004) :
Outstanding vintage
Drinking Window: Now – 2018
Deep brick red. Mature gamy/earthy/apricot/chocolate aromas with some minty nuances. A richly concentrated wine with plenty of sweet dark chocolate/prune/dark fruit flavours and savoury, cedary tannins. A very good Grange year.
90% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Kalimna Vineyard (Barossa Valley), Barossa Valley, Magill Estate (Adelaide), McLaren Vale, Clare Valley and Coonawarra. A warm, dry growing season followed by mild vintage conditions.
