Expert Reviews

"Deep crimson red. Meaty aromas at first, with a little stewed-plum and cherry plus a touch of spice. It takes a little while for the fruit to shine but it opens up beautifully. The palate is bright and intense with snappy red fruit flavours. A modern, medium-bodied shiraz and one of the best preservative free wines I have tried. Drink it in its youth." THE REAL REVIEW, Toni Paterson MW

A bold, juicy red produced again from fruit grown near Canowindra. Brief maturation in French and American oak has added a touch of complexity. Preservatives have been avoided, attesting to quite remarkable and skilful winemaking in achieving such brightness and clarity of appearance and flavour.” OZBABY BOOMERS, John Rozentals, June 2018

“It’s pretty flavoursome. It offers simple notes of raspberry, blueberry, peppercorn and red cherry and while there are smoky/twiggy notes too, the swoosh of fruit is the main go. It smells clean and pure and tastes it too, everything on open and uncomplicated display…” THE WINE FRONT, Campbell Mattinson, 2018

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Ripe plum in colour this Shiraz has aromas of raspberry, cherry and tobacco complimented with some nuttiness. These flavours follow onto the palate in an enticing way and are well balance by silky tannins and vanilla spiced oak. Being medium bodied this wine can be enjoyed upon release, or benefit from short term cellaring.
