5 Stars & 19/20 Raymond Chan, July 2015 (2013 Vintage)
"Very full, deep, impenetrable black-hued purple-red, youthful in appearance. This has a firm, tightly packed, dense nose of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit entwined with layers of cracked black pepper, lifted by violet and black floral elements. Some iron-earth nuances add complexing detail and interest, and the aromatics are expressed with clarity. Fullish-bodied, the palate features a deep, rich core of blackberry fruit melded with black pepper. Layers of spice and florality enrich and lift the fruit which is encased by very fine-grained tannins. The palate has density, depth and grip, as well as linearity, and the powdery tannin textures carry the wine to an elegantly proportioned, spicy finish. This is a rich, concentrated black-fruited Syrah with black pepper and floral lift, encased by flowery tannins and linear structure. Serve with game meat dishes and Middle Eastern inspired fare over the next 10+ years. A barrel selection, being a blend of 97.5% Syrah and 2.5% Merlot, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 22 months in 20% new French oak. 3,038 bottles made." 
5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review ​(2013 Vintage)
"Dense, powerful Syrah with red-fleshed plum, raspberry, new leather, liquorice, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. An heroic red, with a firm structure of ripe tannins that are smothered by fruit and alcohol sweetness to make the wine accessible but give it good cellaring potential."
