"Smooth and velvety, with depth and a distinctive range of flavors, offering a minty edge to the black cherry, plum and spice, coming together smoothly on the polished finish. Drink now through 2016. 12,865 cases made. " (WS)

"A blend of Langhorne Creek and McLaren Vale fruit, the 2010 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz presents a very deep purple black color and is profoundly scented of warm black berries, blueberry pie filling, licorice and cloves with hints of Chinese five spice, mocha and cedar. Very rich, powerful and very full bodied, the concentrated fruit is well balanced by a medium to firm level of rounded tannins and lively acid. It has a very long milk chocolate and coconut laced finish. Give this wine another year for the oak to marry and drink it 2013 to 2020+. " (WA)

Winery Notes:
Black crimson in colour, this wine leaps from the glass with powerful aromatics of blueberries, ripe sweet fruit, licorice and undertones of chocolate biscuit. The seductive texture is laced with fresh fruit flavours, coffee and warm spice, a full bodied Shiraz with an endless depth of fruit.

The Blue Eyed Boy on the label is Sarah and Sparky's son, Luke.

The grapes were grown on the Joppich and Birchmore vineyards in Langhorne Creek and the Kirwin and Mollydooker vineyards in McLaren Vale.

Barrel fermented and matured in 70% new and 30% one year old American oak.
