Deep inviting inky colour. The nose is redolent of blueberries, black cherries, vanilla and a touch of graphite. Full bodied, yet at the same time restrained. Smooth with the type of acid/fruit/tannin balance that leads to a totally integrated seamless palate one always looks for in a great wine. Old Vine Vale fruit does it again!
Eperosa Magnolia 1896 Shiraz 2020, Barossa Valley, SA
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.
