Expert Reviews

It’s true to form. Good sweet fruit with a clear hit of sweet, spicy vanillin oak. Blackberry, black cherry, mocha, cloves, some raspberried highlights. There’s nothing terribly plump or generous about it but it’s satisfying nonetheless. Well put together. Minor and pretty much welcome jamminess to the finish. Good buying and drinking. Rating 90 - Drink 2014 - 2019+ Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (AUG/2013)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby with purple hues

Aroma

Fragrant, full aromas of blackcurrant and morello cherries supported by subtle hints of licorice and cedar wood.

Palate

Soft, juicy, dark berry fruit flavours fill the mouth on the front palate along with fleeting glimpses of milk chocolate, violets and sage. This core of primary fruit is framed by a definite, but fine tannin framework providing some scaffolding and allowing the wine to maintain thrust and a clear direction as it travels through the mouth finishing fruity, controlled and long.
