Named after John Coltrane’s first solo album and the Sexton’s giant step from Margaret River (Devil’s Lair) to the Yarra Valley. They are fastidiously made, premium, terroir-driven, single vineyard wines. Modern, refined, complex.

94 Points A quite shy and subdued bouquet, the palate definition is the strength of this wine; plenty of toasty oak with nectarines and pear flesh and lively acidity providing outstanding length and harmony. James Halliday Wine Companion 2010 Jun-09
95 Points / 5 Stars This combines great character and complexity with finesse and restrained power. The nougat-like aromas reflect careful use of barrels and other artefacts, no single element domiting. Great intensity, line and length. Huon Hooke Gourmet Traveller WINE Jul-09
4 Stars / 91 Points Faintly yeasty complexity, the Tarraford Vineyard makes a straightforward stone fruit impression with gently added winemaking complexity, some fresh cashew and honey. The palate is fine...ripe simple tropical and stone fruits, honey and nougat to close. Nick Stock Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 Jan-09
