Hidden throughout the Barossa, a patchwork of tiny, old and much loved vineyards shyly bear bunches of exquisite Shiraz. The best of this fruit, from vines that are among the oldest in the world, is carefully selected with one wine in mind – Yalumba The Octavius Old Vine Shiraz, a wine that has established a reputation as one of Australia’s iconic Shiraz.
94 points James Halliday Bright crimson-purple; it's impossible to escape the clutches of the oak in this wine, but it is also true of the black fruits. I don't follow the logic of compromising on cork quality in a wine at this price, as is the case here. Having got that off my chest, there is a swirl of blackberry, blackcurrant and licorice on the bouquet and palate (plus oak), the tannins are plush, round and nicely balanced. In its own idiom, a very smart wine.
