Equal Top Wine - World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge

Equal Top Wine - World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge

Our 2001 Shiraz Cabernet has done it again! Equal top wine in The World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge in the latest issue of Winestate Magazine.
[September 2021]

This award winning shiraz blend has aged gracefully - achieving 5 Stars and 98 points in both The 2015 and 2021 World's Greatest Shiraz Challenge. In the latest competition it was equal top to Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace - a great accolade for an 'aged' Margaret River wine from one of the region's smallest, but most highly regarded boutique wineries. 

SHOP - 2001 Shiraz Cabernet

"A beautifully matured wine. Makes you think of a comfortable old leather chair. It is generous and brooding and drinking very well right now."
98 Points Winestate Magazine - Worlds Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2021

“An exceptional group of concentrated wines.” Agreed the judges. “I have not seen a better flight of shiraz and syrah wines with such a lovely level of elegance and concentration.” said one judge. “These are not over extracted and show beautiful balance of expensive, appropriately handled oak, with the expressive fruit.” “Again the aged wines showed their pedigree, fabulous wines of great character and consistency.” Said another.
Judges comments, Winestate Magazine - Worlds Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2021

“Lovely example of the great Aussie blend. It is still amazingly bright and alive, beautifully complex with a perfect, seamless palate.”
5 Stars Winestate Magazine - World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge 2015

“An awesome class of iconic wines. Here we see delivery of harmonious, intense wines with length and complexity but above all - drinkability!”

A decadent glass of fortified wine

A decadent glass of fortified wine

Nice feature on our Artizan Rare Muscat by Young Gun of Wine recently…

“A decadent glass of fortified, rippling with raisin, fig, date and coffee notes, this is rich and unctuous, but with the fortifying alcohol lifting the sweetness, leaving endless layers of flavour to linger on the palate.”

“Made from a solera that dates back nearly 40 years, this is rich with classic mature fortified muscat flavours, with notes of dried figs, dates, rum-soaked raisins, toffee, coffee grounds, brandy-soused plum pudding and dark spices, with hints of clove, cinnamon and brown cardamom. Those flavour cascade onto the viscous palate, with toasted walnuts and treacle joining in, the fortifying alcohol gently cutting through the richness, giving this lift through the back palate, flavours persisting for minutes.”

98 Points - Artizan Rare Muscat

98 Points - Artizan Rare Muscat

Continued success for our Artizan Rare Muscat.  Esteemed wine writer Huon Hooke of the Real Review recently awarded the Artizan Rare Muscat '98 points' and classified it as one of Australia's best muscats. 

"Deep tawny-amber colour with a yellow-green rim, very viscous when swirled in the glass - the signs of a wine of great age. The bouquet is fresh and yet shows great depth of aged muscat character. It's very concentrated, profound and ultra-rich on the palate: tremendous persistence and super-satisfying to sip. A glorious old liqueur muscat of sublime character."      98/100
