"Fruit for the Old Block is derived from low cropping old vines of 60 to 100 years of age. Unique sites in the warmer Barossa Valley contribute a rich foundation while the adjacent higher altitude and cooler Eden Valley provides seamless tannins and lifted aromatics. The intensive selection process for final Old Block parcels begins in the vineyards through to regular individual barrel tasting throughout its maturation. 14.5% alc."
"97 pts ... The product of an outstanding Barossa vintage, 80% from the Barossa Valley, 20% from the Eden Valley, matured in 100% new French oak. Deep purple-crimson; highly expressive and multifaceted bouquet; glorious palate with endless layers of perfectly ripened black fruits ranging through blackberry and satsuma plum. Perfect ripe soft tannins, very good French oak. How can a wine so dense be so light on its feet? Drink through 2030."
