Cape d’Estaing ‘Kangaroo Island’ Shiraz 2001


94pts – Robert Parker

91pts – James Halliday

“From six-year old vines cropped at a mere 2.3 tons of fruit per acre, the brilliant 2001 Shiraz is a candidate for the finest wine ever made on Kangaroo Island. It boasts an opaque purple color in addition to a complex perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with licorice, smoke, charcoal, & a hint of wood. Full-bodied as well as remarkably measured, elegant, & restrained for its power and mass, this brilliant achievement somehow walks the tightrope between excessive power & overly processed politeness. It combines intense flavor with tremendous finesse – an extremely difficult accomplishment…brilliant Shiraz.” – Robert Parker

“Deep colour; rich, blackberry & licorice; lots of mouthfeel; subtle oak, fine tannins. Serious wine!” – James Halliday
