Expert Reviews

Full-bodied ripe pIum, prune and chocolate fruit; mouthfilling wine with soft tannins and good oak integration.Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2010

It’s not a blockbuster but it offers a lovely, dark-fruited, even handed flow of flavours. Easy to find yourself nodding smugly as you settle into a bottle of this. Flavours of blackberries, toast and earth. Gentle but insistent tannin. On the money - and then some. Rating 92 - Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh, The Big Red Wine Book 2010/2011

Fresh, vibrant wine with earthy aromas edged with eucalypt, and a spicy, peppery palate. Winestate Magazine(April/2010)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

This is a lovely rich wine with blackberry, earthy and coconut/ chocolate oak aromas and a rich, juicy palate with a smooth, lingering finish.

Cellaring Potential

A delight to drink now, or cellar for 5 to 10 years.

Food Matching

Try this wine with grilled metwurst, parmesan mash and creamed spinach or pheasant with quince and balsamic glaze.

Winemaking Note

Individual Shiraz blocks were treated separately within the winery to maintain their individual vineyard characteristics. A combination of different treatments and fermenter types were used to add winemaking complexity to compliment the vineyard fruit characters. The wines remained as separate vineyard batches throughout maturation in American oak hogsheads until final blending prior to bottling.
