"Deep crimson. Dark chocolate, black cherry, toasty aromas with roasted chestnut notes. Chocolaty textured and elemental with powerful black cherry, elderberry fruits, firm muscular, touch ferric tannins, impressive mid palate volume and well integrated juicy acidity. Finishes firm with cedar, dark berry notes and superb mineral length. 96 points"
Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal
“The riveting 2020 Shiraz Lloyd shows impressive definition and focus with blackberry, chocolate, cocoa and new leather aromas. Dry and full-flavoured, there is an ultra-impressive mix of robust fruit seamlessly balanced with a dense structure. It then retains superb composure and share through to an incredibly long finish. The 2020 is exceptional and built for the cellar. 96 points”
Angus Hughson, Vinous
"Old-vine sourcing. Made to a traditional taste, with an admirable track record of ageability. Unabashedly full bodied. Black fruit allusions, fennel seed, menthol, smoked salumi and astringent oak tannins that feel almost green at this nascent stage. Yet as the wine opens, the seeping fruit reveals itself to the point of a plush, boysenberry pie sweetness. 95 points"
