Expert Reviews

Medium to full purple-red; in a heavy, fat, squat bottle that can create logistical difficulties, and a newly-inserted cork with stains down one side are off-putting. The wine is another thing again, marrying intense regional and varietal black fruits on an elegant, medium-bodied palate that finishes with excellent spicy tannins, part fruit, part oak; 250 dozen made. Rating 95 - Drink by 2028 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red / black

Aroma

Concentrated aromas of blackberry/blueberry with charry French oak underpinning the intense fruit characters. Secondary notes of ironstone, roasted meat and eastern spices make for an interesting and complex amalgam of aromas.

Palate

Richly flavoured and textured the wine fills the mouth with dark berry fruits, mocha and spices. The flavours linger on and on finally dissipating to leave a fine layer of tannins and balanced acid across the palate.
