2012 ELEMENTS SHIRAZ - AGED IN AUSTRALIAN RED GUM
"This unique, and truly Australian, win shows Liz Barnes' creativity, curiosity, and the couples deep connection and commitment to their place. A deep generous but well-balanced Shiraz that has a deep opaque red gum hue. The Bouquet is fragrant with Australian Alpine terroir notes, hints of sweet liquorice spice and pepper tree freshness mingle with a Victorian bush carpet revealing lifted wooden overtones.
There are elements of earthy truffle, fruitcake and liquorice with just a slight hint of eucalypt. The wine's fine tightly wound tannins and sweet woodsy timbered nuances flow to a smooth long finish. This wine is slightly wild, highly comtemporary and uniquely and unashamedly Australian in personality. A revelation! Bree Boskov - Master of Wine (MW)

Liz Barnes – Wine Maker
A deep generous and balanced wine. A rich and powerful palate with a red gum hue and excellent colour. The bouquet has fragrant spice and pepper insinuations combined with the most beautiful forest floor and wooden overtones; earthy truffle, fruitcake, and liquorice with just a slight hint of eucalypt and fine tight tannins. Timbered nuances throughout with a smooth grain. Slightly wild, contemporary with a unique Australian personality.
