2007 is widely regarded as one of the best red vintages ever in Margaret River. It was a beautiful warm and dry year which lead to grapes full of flavour, moderate acidity and filled with colour and well rounded ripe tannins.

Good depth of colour; a very complex wine that finished its primary fermentation in a mix of French and American oak of various ages; an array of warm spices, cedar and vanilla all add interest to a medium-bodied wine with good balance.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark cherry red with a hint of magenta.
This wine upon release in March 2010 is still incredibly youthful and will open up and flourish as the year's progress. It is instantly recognisable as a beautiful Shiraz with real savoury notes dominating the bouquet.
Lovely elegant sweet jube flavour on the palate with some edgy herb and spice notes coming through. The oak, as befits our modern tastes, is restrained and subtle. Beautiful soft finish with plenty of length.
Certainly a wine which will handle careful cellaring for up to 10 years or more.
Great food match with beef, lamb, goat, game and venison dishes particularly if they are combined with spice, sweet jus or balsamic reductions.
