Expert Reviews

Light colour, but the hue is good; fragrant cassis, mulberry and blackcurrant aromas, then a strongly savoury/spicy/cedary palate; is in a style all of its own. Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot.

Rating 90 - Drink by 2017 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2009)

This blend shifts in varieties according to the year and gives a restrained Australian cabernet cellaring style.

Rating 90 - Rob Geddes MW

A cabernet and merlot dominant blend. Nose has a slightly sappy dark fruit character with traces of rich plum pudding. The palate is quite firm with a fine thread of tnnins, briary fruit and understated oak. Held with good focus to the finish.

Rating 89 - Ray Jordan
