Totally opaque black dark red colour with a deep bright dark red hue. Aromas of liquorice and dark plum meld into some smoky cedar scents with traces of dried meats and blackpepper ensuing. Medium bodied, there’s good richness to the dark plum and liquorice fruits which sit over back drop of smoky cedar, fennel, traces of meatiness and blackpepper. Finely grained tannins support the refined mouthfeel. Finishes with good freshness, solid length and an aftertaste of spicy dark plums, liquorice, smoky vanillin cedar, dried meats and blackpepper.

Other Reviews....
Excellent dark purple hue, thanks to a splash of viognier. It's a glorious, perfectly pitched cool climate shiraz with a lot packed into it, yet retains an elegance on its medium-bodied palate. Heady aromas of dark and red fruits, black pepper, some pine needles/garrigue notes and a fleck of charry-wood spices from the otherwise integrated oak. There's a suppleness, juiciness on the palate, and a savoury note that tempers the fruit, the tannins fine and detailed with the acidity, like a refreshing squirt of raspberry juice. Drink by 2030.

97% shiraz, 3% viognier. 11% whole bunches. 25% new oak. 390 dozen produced.
Impeccable wine. Needs a few years to integrate fully but its cherry-plum flavour, swoosh of smoked cedarwood, lifted spice notes and meaty/clovey aftertaste are all presented in immaculate shape and form. It’s fresh, frisky almost, with finely inscribed tannin and excellent length. Elegance in a glass. Drink: 2020-2028+.
