Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
“The aromas of this premium McLaren Vale Shiraz include distinct mocha and mulberry aromas complemented with vanilla and cedar oak.. The palate displays distinctive McLaren vale Shiraz regional characters. The generosity of bright red fruits across the palate including blackberry, blueberry, violets intertwined with spicy fine grained tannins. This French and American oak integrates harmoniously with the dark berry fruits, providing a full flavoured wine with layers of texture and flavour. A generous Shiraz that we believe over delivers on mouthfeel flavour and length.”
96/100 James Halliday, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Deep, bright purple; the bouquet and medium to full-bodied palate sing loud and clear from the same page, with blackberry and plum fruit skilfully enshrined in fine, ripe tannins, plus a nudge of oak. There is a harmony, a completeness to the wine that means it is totally open-ended, its drinking window without borders.”
5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“This is a hugely appealing shiraz; the gloriously rich bouquet shows black/blueberry, cocoa, floral and toasted hazelnut characters, leading to a sumptuous palate that is concentrated and superbly fruited. The wine offers opulence and power, wonderfully complemented by velvety texture and silky tannins. At its best: now to 2025.”
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Full, near-impenetrable black-red colour with a lighter edge and slight purple hues. The nose is fine and firmly concentrated with intensely packed aromas of ripe blackberries, black pepper, ink and spices with subtle earthy and fragrant ok notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate is well-concentrated with ripe flavours of blackberries, black pepper, plum and spice notes with liquorice, earth and ok detail. The fruit is supported by fine, grainy tannin structure, balancing the richness. The wine is carried by the texture and grip to a long, lingering finish of sweet black fruits, pepper and earth. This is a well-concentrated, ripe, black-fruited Shiraz with complexing pepper, spice and earthy interest on a well-structured palate. Match with slow-cooked game meats over the next 7-9+ years. McLaren Vale fruit from the company’s vineyards on Binney and Malpas Roads, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French and American oak hogsheads.
94/100 Huon Hooke, The Real Review, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Deep, youthful purple/red colour and a rich, chocolate-infused bouquet. The wine is full-bodied and fleshy, deep and dense, with full-bodied warm-climate style, and an abundance of tannin. Very rich, deep, luxurious wine, almost hedonistic. It will cellar long term.”
92/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“McLaren Vale shiraz, with a twist. Toasty/smoky oak is a clear and important part of the wine’s shtick but sweet, plum-like fruit is more than up to the task. This cuts a pretty good groove; it’s a rich red but it’s not without elegance. Indeed spicier, more red-berried notes add lift and energy. It’s not at all heavy. It’s not even especially dark in the glass. And yet it doesn’t leave you wanting. Kudos.
91/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2017 (2015 Vintage)
“Toasty, broody, oaky and very fruity bouquet; engaging and alluring aromas of dark berry fruits – fresh and cooked, a jammy note and packed with liquorice, vanilla and pepper spices. On the palate – intense, fruity, spicy and dry; decent level of concentration mid-palate with ripe berry fruit and oak flavours; fine tannins and medium acidity; fleshy, plump and toasty; dark spices, chocolate and pepper. Lengthy finish, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2026.”
