Expert Review

Bright colour; unevolved bouquet with layers of cigar box, rolled leaf, cassis and fine seasoning from new French oak; the palate is layered and almost silky in texture, with a sweet spot of dark fruit concluding with extremely fine-grained tannins; needs time, but should reward amply. Rating 94 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2011

Winemaking Note

Fruit was hand picked and berry sorted to ensure that only the best fruit and berries made it to the fermentation vessel. No acid additions were made and fermentation was started immediately.
