Remarkable complexity and depth - it's a wine to marvel at as you drink. It tastes of grilled meat, charcuterie, toast, coffee beans, blackberries and smoky spice - in terms of complexity, this is one with the lot. It has fantastic tannin structure, assertive but elegant; it's a wine of certainty. Amazing. 97 Points; Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh, The Big Red Wine Book 2009/10, Jun 2009
Many Yarra Valley wineries label their shirazes as syrah, the traditional French name, to differentiate between the cool-climate, Rhone Valley style and the big, often jammy South Australian style. This is a textbook medium-bodied syrah, elegant with some richness and smoke on the nose but soft and supple on the palate with buttery oak and lovely spiciness. It's low on alcohol at 13 per cent but is likely to develop over the next few years. Winsor Dobbin, Travel & Living, January 2010
Light colour; a very expressive bouquet, almost perfumed; the palate also walks along a path of its choosing, intense yet with spicy/ savoury components; has elements of the Northern Rhone Valley in its make-up. 94 Points; James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2010
Opens with a spicy aroma, with touches of orange zest and dark-red fruits. Palate is soft and generous but with an excellent spine. It's medium weight, with a really classy poise. Nicely structured and showing some finesse. Good tannin structure and effortlessly long through the mid-palate. Understated oak. 94 Points; Ray Jordan; The West Australian
The 2007 Syrah Reserve Release was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1971, was naturally fermented, and was aged for 10 months in seasoned French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, it offers a captivating aromatic array of mineral, lavender, smoked game, bacon and blueberry in a style reminiscent of a quality Cote-Rotie. Medium-bodied, elegant, and silky, it has the structure to evolve for 2-3 years and will offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2022. 92 Points; Jay Miller; Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This stylish Yarra Valley shiraz has a distinct European accent with meaty, malty richness, delicate dark fruit and spice characters, and floral, earthy overtones. Very subtle yet very complex, it tastes superfine and fresh with a long, soft signature. Ralph Kyte-Powell, ABC Delicious Magazine
Steve Webber is a self-confessed Francophile. This is no heroic shiraz but a more mid-weight, smoothly textured style that fits the mould of the great syrah from the northern Rhone. It's about red fruits, not black, with lots of raspberry and cherry flavours. Peter Bourne, Sydney Morning Herald
It doesn't get much better than this classic red crafted from hand-picked fruit from Yarra Valley vineyards first planted in 1971. Perfumed and textured with layers of plum and berry fruit, intense spice and peppery characters, clever oaking and silky tannins. Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury
