Description

Fantastic release. Stunning length, a wide array of flavours, top tier tannin and the (velvety) texture to match. Cloves, nuts, cherry-plum, graphite, woodsmoke. Cool climate profile with a warmth in its heart. I drank a couple of glasses but I was convinced from the first sip. My only real question was whether it was 95 or 96. 95 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Deep red colour with a purple tint, excellent colour. The bouquet is spicy, gently vegetal - probably from whole-bunch fermentation - and touches of licorice and dark berry. It's full-bodied and the tannins are ample with a nicely-judged touch of firmness. Peppery throughout. Good length. The texture not as refined as the best of this region perhaps, but very good. Graphite to finish. Excellent shiraz. 95 points - Huon Hooke, The Real Review
