Expert Reviews

Sweet fruit with a lick of savouriness. Just enough tannin to give it shape and composure. Impeccably well balanced. Jubey fruit jumps out at you like an exclamation mark. Does it taste good? Definitely! Rating 93 - Drink by 2017 - C.M., Australian Wine Companion (MAR/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lifted and aromatic. Sour cherry and spice on the nose.

Palate

The palate is medium bodied with bright fruit, red berries and a hint of earthiness. A soft, elegant style with clean acidity and fine balance.
