Complex nose with deep mocha chocolate aromas laced with smoked meats and a hint of cigar smoke. Full bodied and rich on the palate with primary blackberry fruits, cedar oak and dark chocolate. Well balanced with a fine dry slightly tannin finish. This is the inaugural release of Hamill Shiraz which is made from the ‘best performing blocks’ of their Sugarloaf vineyard. A delicious Shiraz which can be drunk now or aged for a decade.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
