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.

Very deep red/back with crimson edges. The nose offers multiple levels of complexity with sweet blackberry, chocolate, licorice and vanilla evident complemented by savoury well-balanced oak. Very rich powerful entry of blackberry with savoury spice, licorice and dark chocolate filling out the mid palate, leading to a long finish balanced by well integrated tannin structure of great depth.
Named after a hill that rises above the Glenmorangie distillery, The Struie is the home of a pub called the Altman Arms.
The Struie sources fruit from the high altitudes of Eden Valley imparting delicate spice, white pepper and fruit characters. While the Barossa component displays a richer, deeper, more brooding flavour and intensity. The combined structure will reward extended cellaring.
The view from the Struie down across the Dornoch Firth is as inspiring as that of the Valley floor from the Barossa Ranges. This wine is a blend of Shiraz from the Eden and Barossa Valleys, combining the best of both regions.
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.
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.
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.
