"The 2008 Wallace is a blend of 80% Shiraz from 45-130 year old vines and 20% bush vine Grenache from 75 year old vines located in the prime Ebenezer district of Barossa. Yields were a meager 1.5 tons per acre. Dark ruby-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of smoke, violets, incense, black cherry, and blueberry. The wine has a bit of underlying structure, medium to full-body, plenty of sweet fruit, but a slightly compact finish. This pleasure-bent effort is an outstanding value."
Star winemaker Ben Glaetzer sources all of his fruit for this label from the Ebenezer district in northern Barossa Valley. Many knowledgeable experts consider this the finest sub-region of Barossa."

Wine Spectator 90
"This refreshing, exuberant style trumpets its cherry, rhubarb and raspberry fruit, but tempers it with fine tannins and deft balance of acidity, finishing with harmony. Drink now through 2016. 3,500 cases made."

Stephen Tanzer 91
"(80% shiraz and 20% grenache) Vibrant ruby. Dark berries and cherry compote on the nose, with sexy floral and spice notes expanding with air. Offers very good density and sweetness, with no excess weight. Dusty tannins add support to the open-knit boysenberry and mulberry flavors. A peppery note lingers on the persistent, spicy, focused finish. Impressively lively for a hot vintage and drinking well now. No new oak was used here. "
