A rich, full-bodied shiraz that provocatively proclaims its McLaren Vale origin from the first whiff through to the aftertaste: black fruits are wrapped in a coat of dark chocolate and licorice, the all-up consequence a seductively rich wine. Its controlled alcohol keeps all its charms in a bra with moderate uplift. A sure future ahead.
Rated 95 by James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion. (Oct/2015)
Heft of flavour is significant but it’s not out of balance and it feels fresh. This is a very good release. Saltbush, anise, sweet plums and an infusion of chocolatey oak make both a statement, and for an eminent drinkability. Positive impressions throughout.Rated 93 by Campbell Mattinson, the Wine Front.
