Expert Reviews

This wine comes from one of the most underrated regions in Australia. It is an excellent Cabernet from the first whiff of cedar on the bouquet through to the finish and aftertaste, supple, ripe blackcurrant fruit on the palate the vehicle for the adornment of oak and gentle extract of fine grained tannins.Rating 94 - James Halliday's Top 100, The Weekend Australian Magazine (13-14/Nov/2010)
