Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This enticingly fragrant single vineyard Syrah from the Omahu Gravels vineyard in the Gimblett Gravels winegrowing district shows aromatics of violet, blueberry, herb garden, and underlying spice. The concentrated and refined palate of dark berry and plum combines with savoury oak complexity. Elegantly balanced, and finely textured with chalky tannins this wine finishes long. Dictinct and age-worthy."
5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Offering outstanding fruit purity with gorgeous complexity, the wine shows Black Doris plum, violet, clove and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a wonderfully rounded palate exhibiting refined mouthfeel and flowing texture. Concentrated and deeply rich, yet elegant and sophisticated. At its best: 2023 to 2035."

93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, November 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Smoky, spicy, red berried things going on. Viscous and dense in the palate, creamy texture, concentrated berry flavours, loads of brown spice, faint game meat notes in the mix too. Lush. Generous. Slippery and a rolling feast of character and personality. Bold syrah here."
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, vibrant, high energy syrah with taut violet, berry, pepper and spicy oak flavours. An elegant powerhouse that needs time to release its full potential thanks to a backbone of fine yet assertive tannins."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The estate-grown 2016 vintage was hand-harvested from 18 year-old vines in the Omahu Gravels and Twyford Gravels vineyards, in the Gimblett Gravels, and matured for 20 months in French oak barriques (43 per cent new). Dark and purple-flushed, it is enticingly floral, with lifted plum and black pepper aromas. Concentrated and vibrantly fruity, it is richly varietal and smoothly textured, with fresh, concentrated plum, berry and pepper flavours, and a long, spicy finish. Best drinking 2021+."
96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, February 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Purple and ruby with a purple, crimson and pink rim. Distinctive, complex and youthful bouquet with quite urgent and competing aromas of raspberries and plums, blackcurrants and blue fruits. There’s also plenty of new(ish) oak scents with fresh toasty spices, but also a distinctive varietal peppery frame. Vibrant, textured, youthful and fruity core on the palate. Flavours do reflect the nose, firm tannins and higher acidity need time to settle in and when they do this wine will be incredible. A lengthy and complex and detailed wine with flavours that reflect the nose. Best from 2022 through 2032."
