Sourced from a low yielding single vineyard in the central north-west region of the Barossa Valley, where warm dry conditions and rich red soil provide the backbone to some of the region’s best-known wines. The Colonel Shiraz displays notes of black fruits, olive and restrained oak. With a fine tannin structure ensuring the palate has great depth, this is a classic Barossa Shiraz.

It's superbly ripe and engaging on the nose, showing dark fruit richness, cake spice, cedary oak, game and dark cocoa aromas. The palate is equally impressive with excellent weight and power, wonderfully supported by silky texture and layers of velvety tannins. Mouthfilling and delicious, finishing persistent and expansive. At its best: now to 2033. Date: Sept 2023; Price: $150; Rating: 96 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
The name takes you back to the very beginning of the Barossa when Colonel Light discovered it. This is a wine of tremendous fruit concentration and intensity, yet it is delivered with a refined and controlled poise. Spicy with deep plummy fruits showing an infusion of black olive and sage bush. The palate has a delicious dark chocolate coating across the vibrant high energy red and black fruits. A wine for the cellar but it drinks so well now. Date: Nov 2023; Price: $120; Drink: 2023-2038; Rating: 95 Points; Ray Jordan; Wine Pilot
