Shiraz / Cabernet Franc (1992)
Time of release
A classic “Emily’s” in every dimension. Deep, intense red; earthy dark chocolate characters set against assertive tannings; beautiful viscosity as usual. Exceptional cellaring potential. Drink 2000 to 2010.
Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW - August 2007
Medium deep colour. Fresh herb/ rosemary/ red current aromas with some aniseed notes. Palate is really well balanced with sweet red cherry/ meaty flavours and fine lacy dry tannins. Finishes chalky firm, long and sweet with some herb notes. 93 points.

Medium colour. Fresh espresso, redcurrant, tobacco aromas with touch of mushroom. Palate is still fresh and complex with plenty of fleshy redcurrant, espresso flavours, underlying walnutty notes and plentiful gritty ironstone tannins. A tannin beach is left on the palate after the finish. Massive but impressively structured wine. Now - 2028 - 94 points
