Impenetrable inky black colour with a deep black dark red hue. Rising from the glass are amplified aromas of red to dark plum, liquorice and subtle violet followed by vanillin cedar, earth and pepper. Rich and polished the medium weighted palate features lush yet fresh blackberry, red plum and liquorice fruits underscored by a robust tannin structure. Vanillin cedar, dusty earth and peppered herbs ensue. Lively acidity with a slightly grippy yet long, elegant finish.

Other Reviews….
If you've been following this vineyard, you'll be expecting great things from this wine, and well you should. The cool-climate Porongurup vineyard has been responsible for a number of startlingly impressive cuvées over the years and this is no exception. Silky texture in the mouth, plump, concentrated black fruit and layers of sweet spice. It's a marvel. Love the plum through the finish ...
Drink by 2031.
