...with good ripe fruit flavours. Supple red with spice and subtle floral aromas. This wine has energy and drive. Elegant, with more power than I expected. Rating 89 & 4 Stars - Bob Campbell MW, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine (FEB-MAR/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
This wine reflects the nature of a warmer vintage displaying great concentration and balance; black cherry and blackberry dominate the aroma and these are underpinned by Christmas cake spice and liquorice.
The wine has a dark concentrated front palate, which displays these same characters in abundance. The mid palate is fleshy and well textured. The wine finishes with a lovely velvety combination of tannin, fruit and acidity.
