"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
