In 1888 this was changed to “Tolley Scott Tolley” (T.S.T.) and remained with the family till 1960.

Expert Reviews

Bright, youthful hue; an appealing medium-bodied palate brings cassis, spice and cedary French oak onto centre stage, tannins in the wings. A good commercial cabernet from the right region.Rating 92 - Drink by 2020 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

The colour is vibrant with good depth in the glass and reddish hues.

Aroma

The aroma is strong with red berry notes with complex black currant leafiness on the bouquet, giving the wine a fresh aroma. The subtle balanced oak imparting a spicy savouriness to the aroma.

Palate

The 2012 Phoenix is a medium bodied wine, with firm and fine tannins that are integrated into the wine creating a very smooth and harmonious texture. Very linear with rustic flavours and great balance. The natural acidity adds some delicate chalkiness and earthiness to the wine which leads to a firm and dry finish.

Food Matching

Enjoy with rib eye steak cooked medium rare preferably still on the bone.
