" 94 POINTS (James Hallidays Australian Wine Guide)
A great wine from a great vintage: the colour is dark brick red with purple hues. The aromas are of spicy dark berry fruits with just a hint of toasty vanillan oak. The full-flavoured palate is awash with flavours of plums and black fruits, enhanced by silky fine grain tannins; the finish is rich and smooth. It is drinking beautifully now and will cellar well for a decade.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"A strong delivery of sweetly charred American oak with a sweetness that follows through to the palate. It is rich and concentrated and infused with similarly toasty characteristics backed by chunky tannins and a powerful kick of alcohol. Drink 2017-2023"

"a very modern style that is deftly realised. The palate is consistent, with a lightness of touch in terms of ripeness and extraction, but no shortage of liquorice and natural plum fruit intensity. Drink 2017-2024"

One taster, a Master of Wine, higlighted this wine as one of his favourite wines in the tasting:
"A great example of how to provide intensity without huge concentration. All the character comes from the vineyard, and then gently taken through the winery, to give a transparent, classy wine still full of flavour."

Red-purple in colour. The nose has scents of freshly crushed ripe blackberries, dark plums and liquorice followed by some vanillin oak and pepper. The full bodied palate boasts a juicy rich flavours: fresh blackberries and plums followed by some liquorice, vanillin oak and blackpepper. The finish is rich and full. Cellar through to 2020.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Decanter Magazine Australian Shiraz Tasting
"Smoky, struck flint aromas unfurl onto a plush, velvety texture in the mouth. It is a rigorous wine with dominating savoury flavours and a eucalyptus undertone. The alcohol is well hidden through a discretely supportive tannic structure. Drink 2017-2021"

Dense, vibrant colour is a feature of this brooding beauty, along with very ripe, sweet fruit, reminiscent of plum, blackberry and pepper on the nose. The palate is generous, ripe and mouth filling exhibiting berry and cinnamon spice flavours, along with oak-derived mocha overtones and harmonious, soft yet defined tannins.
