Description

Beware the siren with the ruby-red lips. In a smoky room, here she strides  - confident, cool, arresting. Slender, stalky cherry and a smear of blackcurrant bite, spiked with crushed peppercorns. No sunny smiles here, this is deadly serious. Leaner, finer and taut, it marks a big stride ahead from previous vintages. This vision of cool-climate shiraz marks a new age of measured sophistication. 98 points, David Sly, Decanter 

Bright, deep purple colour with a fresh, fragrant, floral aroma which echoes stalky whole-bunch fermentation. The wine is sweetly juicy on the fore-palate before slightly chewy tannins chime in and cleanse the finish, leaving a clean, dry aftertaste. A statuesque wine which definitely needs more time: it's a bit chewy and grippy right now, so serve with protein-rich foods. High potential. 95 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review
