Robert Parker scored this wine with a massive 92 points, 1 point higher than the 2001 vintage!

The Butchers Block is a traditional Barossa blend made with grapes selected from the Turkey Flat vineyards, including some from the original old vine plantings. It is a blend of Mataro (Mourvedre), Shiraz and Grenache, with the proportions of each variety varying from vintage to vintage. The 2002 vintage of Butchers Block is a blend of 54% Mourv?dre, 24% Shiraz and 22% Grenache.

Each varietal component of this wine was vinified separately in large oak vats, and subsequently matured in French oak hogsheads for 18 months. The result is a warm, earthy, full-bodied red with seamless oak integration.

The nose is spicy and complex with aromas of leafy raspberry, cherry, and sandalwood with hints of cocoa, sage, leather and white pepper. The palate displays flavours of black cherries, spice, red currants and pepper with an appealing soft tannin finish.
