Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Further intensified with rich, natural colour sourced from grapes, our winemaking team carefully blend our vibrant, flavour packed parcels of premium Barossa wine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon so bold and dark in colour, it’s almost ink.
Dark & concentrated in colour, with red and purple hues. The bouquet is rich aromas of blackcurrant, mint, dark chocolate, coffee bean and earth. The Palate is plush and vibrant, the textural palate has fine tannins, and excellent persistence with fruitcake, plum & rum & raisin flavours."
NZIWS 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"Charismatic chocolate, cigar box, cherry, plum and currant aromas follow through to the bold, bright, spicy, cedary palate that’s swathed with supple tannins and lingers with a juicy berry sumptuousness."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Km, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"It is impressively fruited on the nose showing fabulous aromas of cassis, mixed berry compote, cocoa, cedar and cigar, leading to a succulent palate that is beautifully weighted and supple. The wine delivers loads of delectable fruit flavours with subtle spicy nuances, wonderfully framed by polished tannins."
