"There is such vibrancy and life in this wonderful example of a classic Barossa blend. Bright plum and cherry fruit lift on the nose with a muted background of raisins and blackberry. The palate is soft and supple with a coffee bean vanillin extract mix complimenting the dark fruits perfectly. Seamless and delicious. Cellar: 7 years."

"I would call this release reliable, in a good way. It delivers on what you might hope and want. It’s juicy, dark berried and generally well fruited, with just enough redness to its berry profile to add both light and lift. It also has just, just enough oak to lend it some polish. It feels neat, it feels satisfying, it feels entirely enjoyable."

"Striking aromas and flavors of fresh raspberries and crushed roses, violets and some blackberries, as well as plums. So well balanced with such depth of flavor and freshness. Some whole-bunch details, too. A blend of 55% grenache, 20% each of shiraz and mourvedre, the balance carignan and cinsault. The best Miss Harry to date."
