"An unashamed full-bodied shiraz that has perfect balance, a rare beast indeed. Blackberry, satsuma plum and polished cherries have unseen tannins and oak embedded in their core. This really is an exceptional wine...
Deep garnet in colour, displaying a mixed array of wildberry and red licorice aromas. The palate is fresh and vibrant, juicy and rounded. A very modern styled Barossa Shiraz, which is delicious drinking now that will mature well for the medium term.
Garnet in colour this modern Barossa wine bounces out of the glass with ripe blueberry and red licorice aromas. The palate is fresh, juicy and alive with dark berried fruits, finishing with a textured savoury edge. Delicious drinking now but will mature well for the medium term.
The Marschall Family vineyards are located in the Tanunda and Ebenezer districts of the Barossa Valley. The Tanunda vineyard is grown on sandy soils which typically produce aromatic styled Shiraz, while the rich iron clad soils of Ebenezer produce a more dense fruit core and structured styled wine.
A variety of fermentation techniques were utilized, but all involved extended skin contact ranging from 14 to 22 days. A cold soak period of up to 5 days occurred before a natural warming to start the fermentation. Upon completion the ferments were pressed to a mix of new and seasoned oak hogsheads, for malolactic fermentation and maturation. Matured in barrel with minimal intervention for 14 months, then naturally clarified, and bottled without filtration.

96 points - James Halliday "An unashamed full-bodied shiraz that has perfect balance, a rare beast indeed. Blackberry, satsuma plum and polished cherries have unseen tannins and oak embedded in their core. This really is an exceptional wine, the one criticism the extensive print on the label remaining unreadable even with a magnifying glass with an inbuilt torch"

"This is gorgeously fragrant on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blackberry, floral, subtle spice and toasted nut characters, leading to a plump palate that is beautifully rounded and impressively weighted. It is up front and delectable with excellent fruit intensity, finishing long and delicious" 95 points - Wine Orbit (NZ)
