The majority of the fruit for Filsell Shiraz comes from the vineyard of the same name.
Very deep, dark, saturated red/purple with blackish depths which stain the glass. The bouquet is broodingly deep and mysterious, smoky-char and earth-bound characters, and black fruits galore, black olive and tapenade too. The palate has great depth and texture, the tannins fleshy and coating, but balanced. It has a big future if cellared. An outstanding value shiraz, very Barossa and very shiraz.

Deep crimson. Lifted dark plum, blackberry, chinotto aromas with mocha/ wood varnish notes. Densely concentrated palate with plentiful saturated inky dark fruits, fine persistent grainy/ chocolaty tannins, attractive mid-palate volume and underlying roasted walnut notes. Finishes claret-firm and bitter-sweet with plenty of mineral length. Generous and vigorous. Drink to: Soon to 2030; Date Tasted: May 2021; Rating: 95 Points; Andrew Caillard MW
