Mostly Padthaway, some Wrattonbully, touch of Coonawarra. Limestone Coast on show. Wonder if the Limestone Coast would be more popular if it was called Diamond Coast or Pleasantview Coast.
Dried herbs, raspberries, vanilla beans, clove-cinnamon spice, cedary wood. Solid start. Juicy, ripe fruited, underlying spice, choc-mocha powdery tannins, finishes sour-salty and with a breathy heat. It’s a fleshy, bold flavoured red, easy to understand, fragrant, medium to full bodied style. It’s set up for those wanting ample flavour, edgy oak feel and a smoothish ride. Summed up, drinking this feels like driving a Mitsubishi Magna. Rating 87 - Drink by 2019, Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au (SEP/2015).
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep crimson with purple hues.
The nose shows fresh blackberry, plum and liquorice aromas, enhanced by cedar and vanilla notes from the influence of oak.
A full-bodied palate showcases the classic varietal plum and spice flavours complemented by light vanilla and regional lavender notes. The soft fine tannins are typical of the best Limestone Coast Shiraz, culminating in a long, satisfying finish.
This is a versatile companion to hard cheeses or hearty meat dishes such as eye-fillet of beef or braised lamb shanks.
