Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Each component used in the blending of the Dark Side of the Moon creates a Shiraz that exemplifies certain characteristics of the Clare Valley. From Leasingham to just north of the Clare Valley township, we had access to parcels that defined the sub-regions of Clare and work harmoniously to create a full, rich and balanced Shiraz. Combined with careful oak selection with 20% New French Oak and 80% older French and American barrels, this Shiraz will continue to give for the next 8-10 years.

An enticing and fragrant wine that greets you with violets, squashed blackcurrants with an alluring hint of olive and licorice that intensifies with every swirl. Elegance, subtle integration and balance of fruit with oak are all attributes of this wine. With juicy dark fruit flavours of blood plums and blackcurrants, persistent mouthcoating tannins and balanced oak integration that lifts rather than overpowers, this vintage typifies Clare Valley and all it has to offer. This is a wine that will be hard to put down."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Powerful, opulent and delectable, this impressively fruited shiraz shows blackberry, blueberry compote, cedar, vanilla and dark chocolate aromas on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with fleshy mouthfeel and intense fruit flavours, wonderfully supported by velvety texture and supple tannins. Up front and delicious. At its best: now to 2025."
89/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"Shiraz from Leasingham in the Clare Valley. Matured in both French and American oak. It’s a warm style with tar, licoirce and saltbush flavours as the mainstay, though raspberry and port wine jelly notes lend a brighter hand. Toasty oak is infused throughout and there’s a general-but-well-balanced creaminess to the texture. In short, it drinks pretty well."
