Expert Reviews

Deep, dark colour foretells the abundantly rich bouquet and palate, with layers of blackberry, plum and regional chocolate supported by ripe tannins, the French oak perfectly integrated after 18 months in barrel.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (AUG/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep purple/crimson with purple and black hues.

Aroma

Licorice, black jubes, Satsuma plums, cinnamon, mocha, red cherry, and hints of savoury oak.

Palate

A complex web of flavours that traverse the palate. The front is dominated by the darker spectrum of fruits - blackberry, plums and blueberries. The 2009 has a definitive concentration of typical uncut shirazes yet something we haven’t seen since the 2006 vintage, restraint. Half way through the palate journey the wine checks itself and much like a funnel the fruits are channelled in by wonderful lines of acid and tannin.

Food Matching
