Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Notes of blue fruits accented by plum, blueberry and mulberry tones. Complexing notes of briar, bay leaf, coriander seeds, dried rose petals and ash. Demonstrating a level of restraint for a McLaren Vale red, this Shiraz provides sweet blue fruit notes of fresh blueberry, juniper and mulberry bracketed by a cleansing pop of acidity and savoury tannin. The sweet fruit entry gently yields to savoury notes of dried bay leaf, briar, dried herbs and dried rose petals. A wine of sneaky length that catches you off-guard, it slowly builds across the palate. The late palate is punctuated by notes of ash and wild game."
92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Blackberry, plum, earth, sausages and spice. Medium to full-bodied, a bit chewy, some chocolate, dried herbs and black olive, balanced, meaty and gently sweet, with a finish of satisfying length. Delivers the goods. Easy to like."

92/100 Toni Paterson, The Real Review, April 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Dark plum and blackberry aromatics. The palate is bright and intense with satsuma plum, rhubarb and lemon flavours. There is a faint thread of crushed herb which adds interest and complexity. An interesting, food-friendly wine. Excellent depth."
