"Really well made wine for this price. Its medium bodied, fruit driven with a cute lift of new French oak adding to the nose and the palate. Has a leafy plummy fruit character on the finish with typically fine ripe tannins. Captures the style perfectly from this region."
Ray Jordan, 'Top 100 Australian Reds, The West Australian Newspaper Liftout, page 6, 5thJuly 2012
"A full-bodied wine with lovely, magenta hues and loaded with juicy, black fruit aromas and flavours. Has good weight and length. "

Dark cherry red with a magenta hue
Lovely ripe mulberry nose, slightly perfumed and pointing to a rich palate
Luscious red wine. Dark berry and plum fruit really fill-out the palate. Firm but powdery tannins with great length to the finish. Well balanced nuances of new French oak but the fruit is definitely the driver of this style. Will mature beautifully for several more years to come.
