Expert Reviews

Hand-picked and sorted, destemmed, wild yeast open-fermented for 19 days, matured for 10 months in French oak (15% new). The spicy, savoury bouquet and palate result from perfectly balanced fruit, oak and tannin support. There is no chest beating here, simply encouraging the Upper Yarra GPS to express itself.

Rating 95 - James Halliday Published 01 October 2017

Block 1, Hazeldene Vineyard, Gladysdale, planted 1998. All MV6 clone. Fermented wild. 15% new oak.

It has flesh and it’s beautifully formed and not a hair is out of place. This is not an awkward wine in any way. Macerated cherries, spices, a light spray of garden herbs, a satiny aspect to the texture. It’s a smooth talker but not in a compromised way; it goes about its business in a polished manner. It doesn’t leap out at you but it doesn’t need to; its quality is a self-evident truth.
