Expert Reviews

"A meaty, dark and smoky shiraz whose deep, spicy flavours of dark berries and plums are accompanied by musky, suede leather-like complexity, dark chocolate/cedary oak and undertones of very slightly baked and raisiny fruit. Its powerful and assertive, with a firm, bony undercarriage and a pleasing length of flavour." Rating 90 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2010 (01/Oct/09)

"Vibrant colour; dark and brooding with lots of spicy oak framing the fruit; the palate is earthy and rich, with a savoury roast meat component; the wine needs time for all parts to integrate. " Rating 93 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2010 Edition (01/Jun/09)

"There’s ripeness and spiciness here…this more structured and serious. We’re betting on this one to age like a charm. It has tightly packed blackberry, dark cherry and mocha, its spicy tones ushering through on the finish. " Rating 94 - Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh, Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, (29/May/09)
