“A cool rendition with its leafy freshness, blackberries and juniper berries. Cedary oak sweetening the palate, lots of spice there. This has come together neatly with good structure, ripe tannins and a bright acid lift to the finish. A terrific drink now. 93 points Drink to 2027. "James Halliday Wine Companion 2020
A rich deep purple colour. Enticing aromas of sweet black currants, blackberry, and a hint of chocolate. As the wine opens, aromas of black berry fruits and cassis, with a background hint of sweet oak, fill the nose. The palate is ripe and concentrated with a wall of very fine, drying tannins. The hallmark varietal black berry fruits fill the mouth evenly, with hints of subtle herb notes of clove and tomato leaf, adding interest and complexity. Shows long persistence of flavour.
New wine to us. We are Shiraz & Cab Sav fans preferring these grapes to merlots. We found the wine lived up to its description and provides a good accompaniment to food you are enjoying, or on its own. Happy to have it in my wine rack. Offers good value at the price I paid for a dozen bottles.
