The grapes for Revolution come from the most revered sub-region of McLaren Vale, known as Seaview. This sub-region is where the best reds to come out of McLaren Vale are grown. The vines are relatively young at 5 years, but due to the extreme lack of soil nutrients & carefully regulated deficit irrigation practices, the vines are already producing voluptuous, fl avor packed & rich fruit, perfect for Revolution. The vines are hand pruned and crop at around 3 tons per acre.

International Wine CellarInky cherry and blackberry scents are given depth by espresso, dark chocolate and smoked meat. Ripe, dense and chewy, with weighty cassis and plum fl avors. Takes a dry turn on the finish, showing solid tannins and a slow-mounting kirsch quality. Give this brooding shiraz some air of you're opening it any time soon.

Wine SpectatorHas a smoky edge to the dark berry flavors. Finishes a bit hot, with hints of licorice and pepper. Best after 2008. 2,800 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastComes out of the chute a bit tarry and rubbery, but seems to come around with some time in the glass, offering a lush, dense texture and flavors of coffee and black olive that finally show some berry shadings on the finish.
