From Shiraz vines planted in 1860, this may be the most expensive wine I've ever tried as well as one with the oldest lineage. Is it worth the price? I'm not sure you can put a price on such heritage - a century and a half in a glass. But anyone who doubts that Australian Shiraz can't rival the northern Rhône for complexity and longevity needs to get to Eden Valley and taste this wine.

Not a wine that I will actively seek out in the future but a wine that I will never forget. Aromatic AF.

2010 vintage. Deep ruby hue. Amazing nose of white pepper, Chinese spice, black fruits and cocoa beans. Complex despite its youth. On the palate, medium acidity, medium plus body and alcohol, medium ripe silky tannins, full concentration and long finish. Extremely promising. Drink 2022 until 2040.
