Side by Side

2012 Side by Side Shiraz (Sold out)

Deep rich red in colour, this Shiraz displays generous regional Langhorne Creek characteristics of red berry fruits, black pepper and cinnamon spiced aromas leading to juicy blackcurrants, earthy touches and fine velvet tannins.

Born to age, our wines are made with complexity and texture to mature and best be enjoyed over the next eight to ten years.

Dark red colour with a purple rim. Rich vanilla, chocolate and berry jam aromas. The taste is full-bodied and smoothly textured, the tannins fine and measured, the alcohol balanced and flavours are attractive. Length is only medium, but flavour is very good. There's a lovely core of fruit sweetness which contributes to its charm.

93 Points Huon Hooke 2015 Gourment Traveller Wine


Good colour, slightly better than its more expensive sibling; a velvety wine with plum and blackberry fruit, allied with touches of chocolate and fruitcake, then fine tannins on the finish.

90 Points James Halliday 2015 Wine Companion

There's a lovely core of fruit sweetness which adds to the charm and drinkability of this shiraz. Deeply coloured, it smells of vanilla, chocolate and berry jam, while the tannis are measured and the alcohol is within the bounds of balance. Now to 15 years.
