Notes from the Winemaker:

A truly remarkable Shiraz. This powerful yet extremely smooth and aromatic wine fills your mouth with lovely ripe, sweet fruit. It will amaze you with its unctuous texture and silky tannins. The Blue Eyed Boy on the label is Sarah and Sparky's son, Luke.


Ratings & Reviews:

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Very deep garnet-purple in color, the 2011 Shiraz Blue Eyed Boy offers a lovely, wild blueberries and black cherry compote nose with undercurrent of meat, chocolate, nuts, some violets, and a touch of licorice with a little coconut. Full-bodied and generous, it is structured with low to medium levels of velvety tannins, a nice acid line and a long finish. Approachable now, it will drink to 2020+." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Feb 2013)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dark and rich, supple and silky, brimming with blackberry and black cherry flavors that show a hint of pomegranate as the finish wraps gently around the fruit. This has a wonderful open texture to let the flavors sing. Drink now through 2016. 6,350 cases made." –HS (March 31, 2013)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2009 vintage):
"The 2009 Blue Eyed Boy Shiraz is a 20% Langhorne Creek and 80% McLaren Vale blend matured in 71% new and 29% 1 year American oak. Very deep garnet-purple colored, it is profoundly scented of blueberry and black cherry with touches of mint, mocha and the faintest whiff of damp loam. Very full-bodied, the bold, ultra-ripe fruit is well supported by medium-firm chewy tannins and medium-high acid, leading to a very long and pure if slightly warm finish. Drink this one 2012 to 2017+." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Dec 2010)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine (2009 vintage):
"Rich and ripe, with a burnt edge to the spice and dried tomato flavors that remain strong against the blueberry and plum fruit. The tannins are well-meshed. Best from 2012 through 2018. 19,000 cases made." –HS (Oct 15, 2010)
