"Excellent wine." - 95 points, Mike Bennie One of Australia's great winemakers and vineyards. Intense elderberry, blackberry aromas with praline, espresso notes and hints of roasted chestnuts. The palate exhibits the characteristic flavours of dark berries, ripe red fruits and complex exotic spices that lead into a supple tannic palate beautifully balanced with abundant natural acid.

Shiraz in Georgia’s Paddock in 2017 was really high cropping, but the quality was also there, says Emily Laughton, with an addendum that rain interspersed through ripening and picking drew out the season, to produce a relatively more elegant wine. “Georgia’s tends to be a more fruit driven wine”. Mellow fog of perfume, dark cherries, faint lavender, warm forest berry compote, faint mint and fennel and a whiff of clove. Moody, lovely perfume. Fleshy textured but with defined ribbons of tannin, flavours dark, brooding, earthy, and drawn long. Seamless flow, superb ‘seasoning’ of oak, velvety but with enough grip to tune the palate. Excellent wine.
