Medium to full bodied with juicy dark berry fruits. It has structure, plushness and sophistication unexpected at this price tag.

Made by the feisty Simon Burnell. It’s released too young, but that’s the price you pay – or don’t in this case. Has a slight whiff of chlorine which is no problem really – reminds me of cleaning the pool as a young man – dark fruit, dark chocolate, bay leaf and spice. It’s medium bodied, sure and firm in the mouth with appealing open weave grainy tannin, a pleasing sense of graphite kind of ‘minerality’, even acidity and a boysenberry and cocoa finish. Serious wine for the money. Rating 91 - Gary Walsh, Wine Front (AUG/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Hints of dusty lavender, nori seaweed, fresh meat (no kidding) and dark chocolate. Behind all that ripe red and black fruits eventually come through.
Medium to full bodied, Despite the blacker fruited nose, the palate seems more blue. It is densely structured, with layers of ripe, nutty tannins.
Drinking well from release, but for those who appreciate maturity, it should happily reward cellaring for 5 to 10 years (or more ?).
