Vibrant reds with purple edges. Spicy alluring nose of red and dark fruits, dry herb and graphite. Supple, rich, blueberry fruits, earth and forest, lots of spices, textural. 2017 was a long cool growing season producing outstanding late maturing red varieties. Grapes ripened very evenly with good tannin development at sensible alcohols.

94 Points - James Halliday, Top 100 Best of the Rest

Deep, bold, bright red/purple colour. The bouquet is deliciously sweet-fruited, aromatic, raspberry-like and ripe, with a cabernet-like nuance and a lot of berry-like aromatics. The palate is gorgeously fruit-sweet and succulent, soft and fleshy but also deep and intense, with a lingering aftertaste and satisfying balance. An excellent light to medium-weight shiraz. I want to drink this! Rating: 93 Points; Huon Hooke

An 86/14% blend, open-fermented with up to 50% whole bunches, matured in oak for 6 months. Bright colour; the aim was a bright and crunchy style, and it hit the bull's eye. Lovely warm spicy elements are threaded through the red fruits - cherry and strawberry - and just enough oak and tannin support to complete the song. Drink to: 2025; Price: $22.00; Alcohol: 14%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday; Wine Companion
