Expert Reviews

Gold & 95 Points - James Halliday, Published 02 August, 2016

You can easily drink this now but the rip of integrated tannin has it set for a long future. It's awash with complex spice and leather characters, yet forceful through the finish. Licorice, tobacco and dark chocolate notes continue the developed-but-youthful theme. Sweeter citrus candy flavours complete an exotic picture.

Winery Tasting Notes

VINTAGE INFORMATION

The 2006 Vintage overall was quite good. It was set up well early on with good winter and spring rains. This provided good grapevine canopies ideal for quality ripening. The weather dried up at the right time, and warmed up considerably bringing many varieties to ripeness almost simultaneously resulting in a very hectic few weeks.

WINEMAKERS NOTES

There's a real freshness to the aroma upon opening, which becomes more and more sophisticated with every minute in the glass. Black pepper, herbs, clove and stewed plums come forward, then they make way for the complex characters that only come with age. dark soy, leather, chocolate and roast beef gravy. The palate is tight, fresh and sprightly. It shows spice, developed berry fruits, chocolate and savoury meats with hits of earth and coffee. There's fresh, clean acidity on the finish giving the wine a youthful brightness that will live on for quite a few more years in the cellar.
