Expert Reviews

A beautiful wine. The asking price is well worth it. Medium-bodied, fragrant, nimble on its feet, a Burgundy/pinot lover's shiraz. Lively acid tips through blueberry and black cherried fruit. Kirsch notes add depth. Savoury/spice notes add lift. All elegance and light. Rating 95 - Drink by 2023 - CM - Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

This wine displays a complex and rich nose with typical cool climate characters of dark fruits, plums and black cherries. This is complemented by white pepper, earth and licorice aromas with a charry oak background.

Palate

This is a rich and full flavoured Shiraz delivering complex savoury characters. Dark fruits and red plum flavours, spice and licorice with a touch of briar and a charry oak finish. The wine is supported by firm acid and fine grained tannins which give it length, balance and structure.

Cellaring

This elegant wine will cellar well over the next 4 to 8 years.
