Expert Reviews

Deep garnet; the perfume is full of succulent sweet red fruits with loganberry conserve, mocha and a light floral note; the medium-bodied palate is juicy and generous, fresh and lively, with ample fine tannins on the finish; an elegant McLaren Vale shiraz by anyone's measure.

Rating 94 - Drink by 2018 - Ben Edwards, James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2012)
