2012 The BallBuster Produced from a blend of 78% Shiraz, 12% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon the wine displays a totally opaque black dark red colour with a very dark red black tinged hue. Lifted aromas of liquorice and ripe black plums bounce out of the glass followed by nuances of dark chocolate, vanillin oak and mocha. Rich and ripe in texture the palate delivers a voluptuous full bodied flavour profile of spicy blackberries, liquorice, dark plums, dark chocolate and toasty vanillin oak. Velvet smooth tannin structure. Long generous aftertaste of spicy ripe blackberries, liquorice, dark plums and chocolatey vanillin oak. Drink over the next 3-4 years.
Score: 95 points -- Nick's Wine Merchants
