- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
- AUSTRALIA'S OLDEST FAMILY OWNED WINERY ESTABLISHED 1849
Complex aromas of freshly baked plum cake,crushed black pepper, violets and fennel with hints of blueberries. The palate is lush with layers of velvet, great structure and flavours reminiscent of satsuma plums, olives, black pepper and anise. The wine finishes savoury and is driven by fine powdery tannins.
95 Point Rated - Bob Campbell The Real Review
"Big, dense and concentrated shiraz with blackberry jam, cassis, dark-fleshed plum, chocolate-mocha, liquorice and spicy oak flavours. A lovely wine, with a structure of ripe tannins that allows the wine to be enjoyed now but suggest it will age well."
92 Point Rated - Campbell Mattinson James Halliday Wine Companion
"Fresh and frisky but rich and svelte. Redcurrant, aniseed, clove and wood spice flavours pour handsomely through the palate. It has a softness, an ease, but the fruit itself is throaty and well powered."
The northern area of the Barossa Valley has some of the oldest landscapes in the Barossa, with bed rocks forming the famous soils in which the grape vines grow. It is also one of the early grape growing areas of the Barossa, with many generational growers who are both traditional and attuned to the needs of making their vineyards sustainable with modern viticultural thinking.
The Shiraz grapes are picked earlier than most in the region, for spicier flavours, softer mouthfeel and slightly lower alcohol percentage. The Paradox is matured for 18 months in new and older French oak.
