Champion Shiraz/Syrah - Vino Fino Wine Awards 2017
Grant Burge's Filsell vineyard with near century old vines is considered one of the best vineyards in the Barossa Valley and consistently produces fruit of great intensity and concentration. Back in May when winemaker Craig Stansborough was here at Vino Fino he gave us a heads up about the 2015 Filsell and how it was something quite special. Having now tried it, he was right on the money. The New Zealand allocation of Filsell Shiraz is limited so if you want some of this long time Vino Fino favourite we suggest you get in while you can. 
95/100 James Halliday's Wine Companion, February 2017 (2015 Vintage)​
"A mix of open and tank fermentation, matured for 21 months in 30% new oak (65% French, 36% American), the remainder used. The vines are nearing 100yo, and coupled with the use of French and American oak, have produced a full-bodied shiraz that proclaims its DNA in full voice. Blackberry fruit, licorice and tarry nuances are decorated with substantial, but ripe, tannins. The saving grace is the alcohol of 14%, not 15%. Drink to 2035."
94/100 Campbell Mattinson​, The Wine Front, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"It sees French and American oak, 30% of it new. It’s grown on old vines – indeed on vines approaching the century mark. It’s always made in an oak- and fruit-rich style. What I like about this release is the lack of alcohol warmth. It’s full-bodied and ultra ripe but there’s no burn; it delivers the style unimpeded. Blackberry, asphalt, peppercorn and liquorice flavours do the bulk of the talking, though toasty/malty oak sucks on the wheel of fruit flavour throughout. Chains of tannin drag through the back half of the wine, impressively. This has long term red wine written all over it."
