James Halliday – Austalian Wine Companion

96 Points ★★★★★

“Off to a flying start, for it tastes and feels as if the alcohol is closer to 13.5% than 14.2% (the latter far from unacceptable). Likewise, the French oak maturation has left the black cherry, plum and blackberry fruits in total command. It is supple, medium-bodied and perfectly balanced, the tannins whisper-smooth.”


Campbell Mattinson - The WineFront – Tasted September 2016

"It’s a red wine in a good place. It’s neither under- nor over-done. It’s fresh, jubey, boysenberried, licked with liquorice and set with full, plum-shot flavour. Toasty/coffeed/chocolatey characters exist in the wine as teasers but little more. It doesn’t overload you on the first sip; it keeps you coming back for more. It’s not shrill, though a little more time in bottle will ease matters into a better place yet. Barossa shiraz as a vehicle of elegance, control, confidence; it doesn’t much matter what you call it, it’s simply good/easy to be around.”
