Expert Reviews

Fruit, tannin, an array of flavours, both fruit-driven and herbal. This isn’t bad. It’s alive with sweet fruit on the nose and mostly, too, on the palate, before herb and brine notes sweep through. Comes up well as it rests in the glass. Rating 88 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (NOV/2015)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Concentrated, bright ruby appearance.

Aroma

Delicate and expressive bouquet is laden with ripe, red and black fruit aromas and spices, enhanced by well- integrated oak character.

Palate

The wine wonderfully fleshy and fruity on the palate, supported by silky tannins. Overall, the wines offers great balance and is deliciously fresh on the finish.

Grays Tasting Panel Review

A very pretty nose, red currants and plums, tomato bush and tobacco, strong vanilla and hints of cocoa.

Chocolate comes through much more on the palate with loads of crunchy red berries, cola and tomato bush. Textured mouthfeel, fine tannins, balanced acidity and length for days.

Plenty of time left in it too.
