Deep purple colour. The nose shows intense, complex cedary, fig, blackberry and blueberry with occasional pepper/spice too. A powerful full-bodied berry fruit flavour, with a little sweet English toffee- like oak evident on the juicy, rolling finish. Restrained tannin and acidity coupled with rich alcohol, produce a seamless, peppery, velvety rolling length.

The mild conditions of this vintage resulted in a wine that is dark and dense in colour. Fragrant cassis and chocolate are abundant. A powerful palate showing great richness, structure and length. Very approachable in its early years due to the incredible fruit sweetness but 5-7 years is recommended to fully reveal the charms of this wine.
Upon release, ‘The Dead Arm’ Shiraz has a vivid, young, dense, purple-red colour. Very intense aromas with a complex combination of fragrant spices and violets, dark cherry, blackberry and blueberry, are made more complex with great liquorice, pepper and integrated svelte of boot-polish like characters. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with attacking spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry, plum and dried black olive. The level of fruit weight masks the framework of oak tannins; however, the mineral fruit grittiness is balanced with a very long fruit-fragrant, persistent spice will yield a wine of great ageing power.
Lloyd Reserve is produced from the oldest Shiraz vineyard at Coriole, planted in 1919, and was first retained as a separate wine in 1989. Very complex aromas of blackberry, plums, spice and chocolate. A rich very succulent palate and gentle tannins. This wine shows great attraction to consume when young or can be cellared for many years. The 2002 Lloyd Reserve is the first produced using French rather than American oak.
Typical of Mary Kathleen style this wine is medium weighted and elegant, and will reward cellaring up to ten years. There are aromas of black currant, spearmint and cinnamon. Mary Kathleen has dark berry flavours and dry, even tannins.
