This 74 acre vineyard was planted in 1988 and is certified organic by ACO (Australian Certified Organics).

 Wine Advocate 91 points (Aug 2012)
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Isolation Ridge Shiraz gives notes of black cherry compote and warm blueberries with nuances of violets, nutmeg and black truffles. Medium to full-bodied, it offers a taut structure in the mouth with a medium level of grainy tannins and enlivening acid, finishing long. Drink this one now to 2017+.

A vibrant style, with lacy acidity adding lift to the blueberry and black currant flavors, revealing shades of smoke and pepper as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2017.H.S.
 Wine Enthusiast 92 points (Sep 2013)
Meaty and intense, this Shiraz is loaded with scents and flavors of cracked pepper, pungent coffee, roasted meat and ripe blackberries. It’s full bodied yet never seems heavy despite a sensation of warmth on the long, richly textured finish. Drink now-2020.
