Langhorne Creek proves a very interesting place for Shiraz producing rich concentrated wines with a rich mellow quality. The vineyards are set on deep alluvial soils and the vines are influenced by the temperate micro climate of warm days, cool evenings and dry conditions which prevail during the ripening season. This wine always jumps out of the glass with tantalizing glossy red berry fruit. A full bodied style with mouth coating tannins backed by powerful red fruits and a cedar vanillin spice. The 2005 is a serious wine built for medium to long term cellaring, 8 years + but approachable now if given plenty of time to breath before serving. we found this wine to have the perfect acid tannin structure to handle rich dishes such as braised pork belly with porcini mushroom risotto.

Wine AdvocateThe 2005 Shiraz "Harry & Edward's Garden" comes from Langhorne Creek. It offers a complex but slightly muted bouquet with notes of eucalyptus and black currants. This leads to a full-bodied wine with a plush palate-feel, well-integrated tannins, excellent depth and concentration, and a long, pure finish. It will continue to evolve for several years and can be enjoyed through 2020.

Wine SpectatorSilky, supple and generous, this is a big mouthful of sweet plum, currant and creamy vanilla flavors that linger nicely on the long, well-formed finish. Drink now through 2015.
