Expert Reviews

"This is a very firm medium-bodied wine. The nose is quite gravelly with a distinct spicy white pepper character. The palate has firm tannins and substantial oak with a rich and powerful flavour profile. Very long and rustic with good structure. "Rating 88 - Ray Jordan, West Australian, Ray Jordan (30/Sep/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This wine has a subtle white pepper note, layered with bright berry fruit and crushed violet aromas on the nose.

Palate

The palate is rich with pepper, plum fruit characters, spice notes and cocoa, complimented by silky tannins.

Food Matching

Most red meats and game and a variety of cheeses.

Vineyard

The fruit for this wine was sourced predominantly from two sites within Hawkes Bay. The free-draining gravely soils and warm temperatures of the Gimblett Gravels encourage low yields and naturally devigourated vines. In conjunction with intensive vineyard management, these factors ensure the resulting fruit is deeply coloured and intensely flavoured, with ripe tannins.
