Expert Reviews

90 Points & 4 Stars. "Quite striking peppery/spicy aromas from this inexpensive approachable red; bright lifted fruits, an attempt at complex cool climate style. The palate has fine tannins made in a savoury/meaty style, finishes with some plush plum flavour, blue and dark berries. Neat as a pin." Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009, Nick Stock (Australia), 2009

Best Mid Range Red Wine. 5 Stars. "Viogneir and cool climate shiraz work well together and the result is this lively aromatic blend, which as exotic spice and dark fruit characters. A balanced and harmonious wine that complements a wide range of food."Uncorked Wine Guide - Sunday Life magazine, Ralph Kyte Powell & Sally Gudgeon (Australia), 23 Nov 08

92 Points. "…it’s an elegant drop and extremely enjoyable….worth the money asked." 'The Keys Review of Wines (KROW), Tony Keys (Australia), October 2008

91 Points. "The fruit has been sourced from a number of high-altitude vineyards in the Strathbogies and Pyrenees with a little from the Yarra and the famous Booths of Taminick. Just a small amount of viognier, but makes the world of difference. A stylish supple and opulent wine with some structure and poise. Great mouth feel. Right on the money for this style." West Australian, Ray Jordan (Australia), 28 Aug 08
