Lavish nougat and mocha oak, peppermint, blackberry. Plenty of mocha oak, richness and power through the mouth. Impressive mid-palate. Flashy. Very good finish. Maybe best over the medium term. Rating 93 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front (AUG/2013)
Deep garnet, bricking; the bouquet offers dried leather, crushed leaf and a lavish level of new oak; the palate shows good concentration and depth of fruit, ample fine-grained tannins and a long charry oak conclusion; drying out and despite the price tag, should be enjoyed from release in the short to medium term. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JUL/2013)
More evolved and mature for a 2009 vintage. Mint and liquorice layers follow on to a leafy, sweet chocolaty finish. www.decanter.com
Odyssesy Cabernet Sauvignon and Prodigy Shiraz mixing power with indulgence. An excellent wine in its category - one especially worth seeking out. Oz Clarke, Pocket Wine Book 2013
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark plum with purple red tinges.
An intricately layered and complex array of ripe fruit and oak maturation aromas. Ripe plum and subtle mulberry are complemented by alluring mocha and roast coffee notes.
An intense palate structure of ripe fruit flavours, smoothly interwoven with extended oak maturation. Dark berry fruits, hints of plum and mulberry with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate oak flavours are balanced by finely grained, softly assertive tannins.
Suggested cellaring – medium to long term (10 to 20 years).
The intense flavours of Odyssey will perfectly accompany slow-cooked beef ragout and roast duck, served with a rich reduction.
