Expert Reviews

The bright red fruits of this wine are dominated by lavish oak-handling, assuredly of the highest quality; however, the palate tells the true story, with liqueur cherry, clove and a perceptible ironstone character; treads the line between sweet fruit and savoury complexity with aplomb, and will deliver real pleasure when the oak further integrates with the fruit.Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011
