Expert Reviews

Strong crimson-purple; from a single vineyard planted in ’83, using the Geneva double curtain trellis, uncommon in the Yarra Valley, but worked perfectly in the warm vintage; lovely cassis and blackcurrant fruit, fine tannins and quality oak.

Rating: 95, Drink By: 2023 - James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion (16 Mar 2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Youthful cherry red with hints of purple.

Aroma

Wild berries, blackberry, spice and chocolate with hints of cedar and toasty oak.

Palate

Ripe berries, full flavoured and complex, with velvety tannins and a layered seamless finish.

Cellaring Potential

An additional 10 plus years cellaring will further enhance complexity.

Winemaking Notes

Maturation was for 14 months in primarily new oak. Barrel to barrel racking off light lees and adjustment occurred after 4 months then an additional barrel to barrel racking. Selected barrels were blended and aged for a further 6 months prior to bottling under screwcap.
