96 points from James Halliday for our 2009 Whalebone Cabernet Shiraz

Author: James Halliday
Source: Australian Wine Companion
Review Date: Nov 2013


An 84/16% blend aged for 22 months in 70% new French oak. Blackcurrant fruit is the main driver, albeit backed up on the mid-palate by more fleshy shiraz; it is medium-bodied, perfectly balanced, the tannins silky, the oak not at all over the top, the finish long.

96 points / 5 glasses
