For his 2003, Gary Farr blended fruit from two of Bannockburn's Shiraz blocks: the Winery Block, planted in 1990 and extended in 1996; and the Range Block which was planted in 1974. The warm conditions in 2003 resulted in a rich and powerful wine on release. After two decades resting in the cool of the Bannockburn cellar, the wine has aged gracefully into a mature, deliciously savoury Victorian Shiraz balanced by a freshness that belies its age. Twenty-year-old Australian Shiraz from a great grower at this price should be a no-brainer. Halliday’s note was penned in 2021.
