"A beautifully elegant red with lots of character and charm. Meaty, earthy, slightly funky aromas become finely perfumed with airing. Deep layered, and lingering on the palate, with well-modulated savoury flavours and powdery tannins."

"Good purple-crimson; fragrant spice, herb, blackberry and redcurrant aromas; a medium-bodied palate, lively, fresh and supple."

 

Ralph Kyte-Powell - The Age, Epicure - 3 May 2011 

“The 2009’s nose offers intense berry aromas, savoury earthiness, fruitcake spice and new leather. Finely textured, middleweight, juicy and well-balanced, it’s much less macho than the Barossa norm. A varietal wine full of interest.”
