Expert Reviews

This 2007 is not a hard wine to like. It’s beautifully structured. Beautifully fruited. Blackberries, cloves, eucalypt and integrated cedary oak. Indeed I kept coming back to this wine and admiring how fine and well managed it is. Near-perfect tannin set. My only issue with the wine is its alcohol warmth, which for me detracts from the wine significantly. Rating 92 - Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au (12/JUL/2011)

Good purple hue; a restrained wine, just reaching medium body status; there are some spice and mint notes to the cherry and plum fruit, the tannins fine and the oak subtle.Drink by 2017: Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2011)
