“This has a very sleek, polished and nicely ripened set of aromas that sit in the raspberry and red-plum spectrum. There’s a smooth build of tannin and a fleshy red and dark-berry core here. The depth and seamlessness are both impressive.”

Wirra Wirra Catapult Shiraz
“There’s a deep and fresh feel to this shiraz that has a dark-plum and blackberry core of aromas and flavors, as well as an edge of licorice and tar on the nose. This is concentrated and juicy.”
“Wirra’s top grenache has a wild-raspberry edge with baked biscuit and red plums, as well as a fragrant rose and pastry edge. The freshness is attractive and the juicy core of raspberries here is impressively long.”
“This is in good shape in this vintage with very clear cabernet cassis and blackcurrant aromas, as well as leaves and red fruit. The palate has a very evenly paced build with layers of tannin and a smooth, juicy and deep finish. A blend of 52% cabernet sauvignon 39% shiraz and 9% merlot.”
“This has impressive depth, purity and detail with an impeccably fresh array of raspberry and red-plum aromas, subtle oak spices and plenty of perfume. The palate is seamless and even, showing such purity and elegance with length and power. Stunning.” (#53 of Top 100 Australian Wines of 2018)
“An impressive wine that delivers unbridled fleshy and playful fruit, which are framed in an astutely crafted tannin structure. The nose runs from red fruits to darker shades of plums and blackberries with a note of star anise and cloves. The tannins are silky and fluid with a very supple and seamless feel. Young and approachable. It will age very well and for more than a decade.” (#95 of Top 100 Australian Wines of 2018)
"Very impressive dark plums and licorice with toasted spices and blackcurrants, leaves and herbal accents, which speak strongly to cabernet. This is an impeccably made wine. Silky tannins that are long and succulent with some redcurrants creeping up through blueberries and cassis."
