46% Merlot, 44% Malbec & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
5 Stars & 97/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, April 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"This gloriously composed Bordeaux-style red displays blackberry, creme de cassis, cedar, violet and game characters on the nose with a touch of cigar complexity. The palate is powerful and richly fruited, while remaining firmly structured and brilliantly balanced. A stunning red delivering mouthfilling texture and delectable flavours, backed by loads of fine, chalky tannins. A blend of 46% merlot, 44% malbec and 10% cabernet sauvignon. At its best: 2020 to 2030."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"A flagship blend of merlot, malbec and cabernet sauvignon from their Triangle (90%) and Gimblett Gravels vineyards. Dense and intense red with concentrated Christmas cake dried berry and prune flavours with a seasoning of mixed spice and a backbone of classy oak. Approachable now but promises to age very well indeed."
5 Stars & 20/20 Raymond Chan, May 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"Full, saturated black-hued purple-red colour with inky depth, very youthful in appearance. The nose is refined in expression with densely packed and concentrated aromas of ripe black berried fruits and black plums along with nuances of liquorice and suggestions of boysenberries, harmoniously layered with Asian spices and sweet, nutty oak. The aromatics possess freshness, unfolding nuances of dark herbs and florals. The aromatics grow in breadth and depth, becoming fulsome in the glass. Full-bodied, the palate is explosively rich with sweet and succulent flavours of ripe blackberries and black plums, along with nuances of boysenberries, liquorice, spices and oak. The fruit sweetness is the feature, forming a deep, plush and opulent heart, opening to fill the mouth. The fruit is framed by serious, fine-grained, flowery tannin structure, and the wine carries with great power and drive to a luscious, long and sustained finish. This is a superbly rich and opulent Merlot/Malbec-based wine with succulently sweet blackberry, plum, liquorice and spice flavours on a seriously structured, but refined palate. Match with roasted and slow-cooked lamb, venison and game meat dishes over the next 15-20 years. A co-fermented blend of 46% Merlot and 44% Malbec with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, fruit 90% from the Triangle vineyard and 10% Gimblett, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 26 months in 67% new French oak. 80 dozen made."
