"First created in 1987 as a tribute to the greatest winemaker in Australia, Maurice O’Shea. This wine is a blend of our greatest barrels, from our best vineyards, creating wines of place and excitement. Exclusively estate grown, the grapes are sourced from the Old Hill planted in 1880, the Old Paddock planted in 1921 and Rosehill in 1946, delivering a wine that will reward the collectors, the connoisseurs and all those who love wines." - Winemaker Notes 

The tannin structure, the meatiness, the mineral. This wine gives an insight into what makes this vineyard so special in a way that I don’t know that I’ve encountered before, in a young wine. ..... It has length and complexity and all those things but this wine has more than that. It’s like it’s saying, Let me show you something. I took one sip and thought, Don’t go. I took another and thought it again. This isn’t just a wine, it’s an insight.." - 98 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front 

"Deep red with a good purple tint and a bouquet that is reticent at first and builds meaty/charcuterie and savoury underbrush aromas with exposure to air. The palate is full-bodied and fleshy, rich and dense with plenty of extract and satisfying length, the tannins and flavour lingering long and harmoniously on the follow-through. A dramatic wine and very impressive. A Hunter shiraz of gravitas, with a great cellaring future. An outstanding O'Shea." - 98 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
