96 points James Halliday

Crimson-purple; black fruits abound on the bouquet and palate, intertwined with spice, pepper and fine tannins; the overall mouthfeel is exceptionally good, emphasising the medium-bodied, elegant nature of the wine. 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 South West Rocks Shiraz has an intense, complex nose of ripe black cherries, black raspberries and roses with underlying hints of toast, nuts, baking spices and smoked meat. Medium-bodied with amazing intensity and tension in the mouth, it has a medium to firm level of grainy tannins, very crisp acid and a long finish. Made for the long haul, consider holding onto it for a year or two and drink 2014 to 2024+.

Probably the pick of the wineries in Victoria’s Pyrenees region, Dalwhinnie has 18 hectares of mature vineyards at an altitude of almost 600 metres. Family owned since its inception in 1976, Dalwhinnie makes excellent, intense Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, with a production just shy of 5000 cases annually. All the wines benefit from some bottle age and are potentially long lived. A new 8 hectare vineyard, Forest Hut, were planted in 1999, and provides more Shiraz, some Viognier and a bit of Sangiovese for blending options. They’re very nice wines with a cool climate influence.
