Expert Reviews

"A glorious cabernet, its blackcurrant, cedar and spice bouquet leading into a seamless, perfectly balanced palate with cassis and redcurrant fruit framed by cedary oak. It is the amazing tannins, softly woven into the fabric of the fruit, that give this wine its unique class."Rating 98 - James Halliday, The Weekend Australian Magazine, James Halliday's Top 100, (NOV/2014)

"It’s probably my favourite Australian wine region – physically and for the wines it produces. … Nutty oak in support, dark fruit, chocolate, leaf and floral perfume. Medium bodied, but pretty dense this vintage – feels a little more serious – turning up the heft and ripeness just a little. It’s kind of glossy yet laden with tannin, mineral and grunt. Has length and impact, while maintain its typical well mannered charm. Feels very much like a long term release." Rating 95 - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front (AUG/2014)
