Expert Reviews

Full bodied with very pure fruit, minimal heat, freshness, structural lightly sandy tannins and excellent length. A dynamite wine that’s great to drink now or later. Rating 94 - Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au

...packed with deliciously ripe boysenberry and blackberry fruit, all laced with graphite, incense and Turkish coffee hints. Shows a nice edgy minerality through the ripe, muscular finish. 93 Points Wine Spectator

Aroma/Palate

Vintage Condition

Wet and challenging conditions led up to the end of spring before a remarkably dry summer. Formidable sunshine and a sustained wind cleansed the Vineyards before harvest began an exceptionally long 120 days after flowering. The wines shows a subtle balance between fruit, crispness, and finesse of the tannins providing the indication of a keeping vintage. The aromatic profiles are complex, powerful, without a hint of over ripeness. Less imposing than in 2005, but amply sufficient, the most striking feature of 2007 is the purity of perfect fruit. To conclude, I see 2007 as one of these Great Vintages which call for a careful élevage: in my view, 2007 is in line with 1998, 2001, and 2005.
