Hayes Family Wines Reserve Shiraz 2016


The flagship for Hayes Family Wines to be released in September 2018. Premium Barossa Shiraz to be held in two hands.


Despite being launched later this year, you wouldn't touch it until 2020 at least. A beast of a wine, over a few days of tasting it softened and nestled into a neat groove making it easy to see where this is going.

Sandalwood, red plums and a hint of clove, delectable fruit sweetness hums along to a respectable tempo. Super dark and dense in the glass, the fruit powers through yet possesses a sophisticated caress. Wood spices linger long into the night - I get a sense the finish will never end.

I looked at this over four days. The shape and structure on the fourth still exuded freshness - yes please! Cellar for as long as you like.

Drink 2020 to 2030+
