Each of the reds in the magazine have received a whopping 96 points or more. That's gold medal standard and gold class drinking. 2013 Oakdene William Shiraz received 97 points!
Our Single Vineyard Shiraz exhibits typical cool climate regional characters of savoury dark fruits, spice and white pepper notes. The addition of whole bunches during fermentation enhances the wine's perfume and palate structure.
This is what James Halliday had to say, 'Wild yeast, small addition of whole bunches, matured 16 months in new and used French barriques. Deep, but vivid purple-crimson, this is as powerful as cool-grown shiraz can possibly be, full bodied and taking no prisoners, albeit nodding to the Rhone's Hill of Hermitage, its genetic ancestor. Inky black fruits, excellent acidity and tannins all under the same star sign; will outlive many of us. 13.9% alc.' To get your hands on some William click here!
