- FRA - Burgundy
“This is your entry-level Burgundy wine. No new oak is used here; after 18 months in older oak it is further aged in tank. Lovely floral, herbal note with a distinct minerally steeliness. The palate is firmish and finely crafted, with nice subtle floral fruit intensity. It has plenty of power and a long persistent finish.”
Rating 92 - Ray Jordan, West Weekend Magazine
“…Clear, bright crimson; by some distance the best Bourgogne I have tasted, its red berry/plum fruit framed by excellent savoury tannins that draw out the palate into a long, lingering finish.
Rating 91 - Drink to 2017 - James Halliday, The Weekend Australian
Medium to full red/purple; very good colour for its age. Sweet raspberry, strawberry aromas. Excellent fresh, clean, bright, undeveloped and well-made wine. Pristine with light, tight and rather firm tannins. All bodes well for ageing. Drink 2012 – 2020.”

Winery Tasting Notes
Mid cherry red in colour.
The nose has fragrant lift of dark berry fruit with a complex mix of spices and a hint of mushrooms.
On the palate there is a very good depth of flavour with spicy plum fruit and cinnamon and clove spice characters combined with a touch of forest floor. These flavours are beautifully balanced with a very fine tannin finish. Along with generous mouthfeel, this wine has the elegance and finesse of fine Pinot Noir.
