James Halliday 94
67% shiraz, 17% grenache, 10% mataro and 6% viognier from the Eden and Barossa Valleys. The shiraz and viognier were co-fermented, the other varieties fermented separately, matured in French hogsheads (10% new). Shiraz/viognier dominates the blend, but does so without bluster - indeed this is a wine with javelin of linearity that is from fruit and acid, not tannins or oak. This could be a sleeper, stealing the show in 10+ years.
