2018 Harpers Wine Stars – 5 STARS
Over-delivering for the price, with good, clean, modern presentation, this was upfront with bramble and bright cassis fruit, overlaid on an intense, spicy, creamy, but modern-leaning palate. Well-structured, with integrated but firm tannins, and a nice balance of oak, fruit and spice through to a long finish.
Winestate’s WINE OF THE YEAR FINALIST 2017 – TOP FIVE
The wine has lifted aromas of chocolate and dark cherries, with a richly flavoured palate of spicy ripe plum and blackberry that finished with smooth tannins.
