Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"A modern, elegant, cool climate style crafted from our premier parcels of southern Margaret River Syrah (Shiraz). Wild fermented, with a portion of whole bunch fermentation and carbonic maceration, this aromatic, fineboned Syrah is luscious, spicy and beautifully complex, representing the future of our favourite ‘alternative’ Margaret River red varietal.

Aromas of lifted aniseed, white pepper, cacao, clove and pine sawdust sit on bright fragrant raspberry, cranberry and Japanese sour plum. Beautifully silky entrance on the palate, with chalkiness on the finish leaving a dry and immensely fragrant perfume lingering. Raspberry and cranberry juice with a red peppercorn spice and a hint of red liquorice remain."


Reviews for the 2020 vintage below…


95/100 Erin Larkin, Wine Companion (2020 Vintage)
"100% wild ferment, 20% carbonic maceration, 13% whole bunches. Matured for 11 months in seasoned French oak. Iridescent in the glass, and all silky flow on the palate. The 2020 vintage was responsible for a tranche of wines that taste, frankly, effortless. This is one of those wines. Gorgeous, with all the push and pull of exotic spice, Chambord, orange zest and crispy nori you could possibly want. Glorious."


95/100 Ray Jordan, The West Australian (2020 Vintage)
"The fruit for this wine is largely from southern Margaret River vineyards. It’s made in a slightly softer and more restrained style to the standard shiraz from Vasse Felix. Beautifully aromatic and perfumed with a spicy dried herb mix. Carbonic maceration has been adopted to contribute to the light perfumes and effortless palate weight and smoothness. The tannins are fine and chalky and the oak brilliantly handled to compliment. It’s a wine that almost redefines Margaret River shiraz."


91+/100 Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, November 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"It’s hard not to admire the balance of this wine. It’s intricately meshed with tannin too, which in combination with cherry-cranberry-plum fruit creates a clear, medium-weight, elegant impression of quality. There are fragrant herb and twig-like notes here too – it’s inherently complex – though the wash of fresh, just-ripened fruit remains at the helm. This wine is good now in a super-young way; it should improve."
