Top 100 Wine $20 or Less. 90 Points "This shiraz if full of sweet, dark grape flavour. Bloody delicious. It tastes of chocolate, raspberries and sweet, dried out grapes, the lot tempered by fine, smooth skinned tannins…it is downright yum." Big Red Wine Book 2009/2010, Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (Australia), May 2009
92 Points. "This is incredible value for a nicely balanced , well made McLaren Vale Shiraz. It has layers of black fruits and spice, liquorice, oak, finely textured tannins and good length. A touch of Viognier meshes so well you’d hardly recognise it was there." Wine Business Monthly, Tyson Stelzer (Australia), February 2009
