The Apollonian theory of Greek mythology entwines two seemingly opposite philosophical elements of the gods and brothers Apollo and Dionysus to create a complete and complex entity. Order and chaos, purity and excess, harmony and passion. Entwined by nature they are at their best when together. The vineyard, the winemaker, the vintage and the moment create the experience.
Power and refinement in one, this delectably styled shiraz shows blackberry, dark cocoa, cedar, cake spice and floral notes on the nose, followed by a sumptuous palate delivering velvety texture and plush tannins. Mouthfilling and hugely appealing. March 2021; At its best: now to 2036. Price: $70.00; Rating: 96 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
Deep, intense purple hue. The nose gives up blue fruits, some mocha and dry earth notes. Very concentrated and powerful. Great length, and whilst there's such intense fruit it is tempered by judicious oak spice and well-framed tannins. Even being so young it's already complete but will reward further cellaring.
