    2011 Eight Bells Reserve Shiraz

    The Name

    "Eight Bells’ in nautical terms represents the finish of a sailor’s time on watch - a
    time to relax and enjoy something to eat and drink, and the company of other
    crew members. This wine is perfect for such occasions, be they at sea or
    on land...


    • 2011 Eight Bells Reserve Shiraz - Double Gold Medal (Chinese Wine & Spirit Awards)
    • 2011 Eight Bells Reserve Shiraz - 93 points (James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion)

      Particularly good colour for the vintage, and it doesn't deceive; 20 months in French and American hogsheads has helped build the sweet black fruit flavours, plum, chocolate and vanilla also in the mix; the tannins are ripe, the overall mouthfeel good.”- 93 points.
