Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Aug 2013)
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Rocky Gully Shiraz has appealing red currant, red cherry and mulberry notes backed up by hints of marmite toast and roses. Medium to full-bodied with an impressive amount of red and black fruit flavors structured with a medium level of rounded tannins and lively acid, it is finishing with good length. Drink it now to 2017.
