Expert Reviews

Fluffy Hair Adair just popped round, so we opened a few wines, and I wrote a few notes. Kind of ’30 second theatre’ review style, but, you know, some wines are easy to get your head around. I like those sorts of wines. Makes my life so much easier than it is, at present.

Forest berries, tobacco/cigar box, dusty spice, rosy perfume. Medium-bodied, fleshy but tight and pleasingly chewily tannic, perky jubey fruit, tempered by a black olive finish of fine length and gentle drag of tannin. Super. What a great drink. Rating 92 Gary Walsh, Wine Front April 2018

Excellent youthful, bright, medium to deep purple/red colour; the bouquet is fresh, primary and raspberry-scented. It's as if it's unwooded. And possibly whole-bunch fermented, the leafy, stemmy characters being pronounced. Bright, fresh and brilliantly pure-fruited on the palate, with light and gentle tannins and balanced acidity. A lovely early-drinking style, which actually tastes younger than it is and presents like a hipster-ish early-bottled, low-extraction, unwooded or lightly-wooded style that you can smash young. A 'joven' cabernet merlot! Cleverly made and delicious. Rating 91 - Huon Hooke The Real Review, Ranked 7 of 22 Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour Vibrant purple-red.

Aroma Pure fruited with fresh blackberry, blackcurrant and ripe plum, hints of sage, violets and leaf. Uncluttered.

Palate The palate is juicy and smooth, with very fine tannins that leave a pleasant powdery aftertaste, adding to the sense of refreshment. While not overly complex, there is genuine persistence of flavour. Lovely, fruit forward early drinking.
