5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"A gorgeous syrah; the instantly appealing bouquet shows dark plum, cherry pie, cocoa, cedar and floral characters with nuances of black olive and clove. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and richness, wonderfully supported by silky texture and polished tannins. The wine offers delectable fruit flavours combined with elegant savoury notes, making it delightfully drinkable already. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, July 2017 (2016 Vintage)
Very dark, deep, black-hued purple-ruby colour, a little lighter on the rim. Youthful in appearance. The nose is gently full and voluminous, the fruit expression a little restrained, but revealing aromas of ripe blackberry and dark raspberries, with notes of Asian spices, violet florals and black pepper detail. This has excellent vinous presence. Full-bodied, the palate has a finely concentrated, but rich core of vibrant blackberry and dark raspberry fruit, with layers of spices and florals, with black mineral elements. This has sweetness and lusciousness, with suggestions of opulence, but the fruit is a little checked in exuberance. The mouthfeel is refined in texture with ripe fine-grained tannin extraction, and the fruit is enlivened by fresh acidity, providing a fresh, blossoming finish. This is a finely concentrated, rich Syrah with blackberry and raspberry fruit with florals and spices on a fine-grained, fresh palate. The wine is a little shy at present, but will bloom. Match with duck, pork, lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-7+ years. MS and ‘Stonecroft’ clone Syrah fruit, hand-picked, fully-destemmed and co-fermented by indigenous yeasts with 0.55% Viognier to 14.5% alc., the wine spending approx. 3 weeks on skins and aged 13 months in 25% new French oak."
