94pts; “A Shiraz for those who like to occasionally look at something different from the big and bold bombs from the Barossa and McLaren Vale (not that there is anything wrong with those wines). This is a deep, even slightly dull red (which is not meant in a pejorative way). The aroma is of dried herbs, spices, leather, cloves, animal hides, red fruits and root vegetables, notably beetroot. This then really lifts on the palate. So much to like here, especially the supple, creamy texture. The wine has very good length and is seamless throughout. A focused, vibrant style, more medium-bodied than many Aussie Shiraz, but delicious. Drink now for ten years.” ~ Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
90pts; “Very deep purple-red colour. Blackcurrant and dark fruit aromas on the nose have suggestions of savoury spice and dusty oak. It’s medium-bodied, finely balanced and ripe tasting with sustained berry and bitter chocolate flavours that lead through ample drying tannins.” – Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review
