Expert Reviews

91 PTS - "Good hue; typical of the Clare Valley, with solid structure underpinning the black fruits; good oak and tannin balance augments the spicy / mocha notes also present." - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2010

90 PTS - "It was a pleasure to have this in my mouth. It’s an effective mix of savoury earthiness (and maybe even a touch of bottle development) and sweet, raspberried, raisiny fruit flavour. It’s well flavoured but not weighty, and once you swallow the sweetness wins out, leaving your mouth awash with licorice and lollies. This is a good honest red." - Campbell Mattinson, Winefront.com.au, Feb 2009

"Very traditiol, developed style. Good oak/fruit balance with delicious chocolaty notes and supported by firm, ripe tannins." - Winestate, May 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

The majority of the fruit is from our Yertabulti Vineyard which is on an elevated site east of the town of Clare. The shiraz vines on the 'Terra Rossa' soils are naturally very low yielding and always display outstanding intensity and varietal character.
