WINNER; James Halliday's Wine Companion 2020 WINERY OF THE YEAR! A luscious medium bodied Shiraz with bright, intense aromas of dark fruits; plum, cherry, blackberry along with savoury earth and dark florals. The bright, vibrant fruits follow on the palate. Generous, sweet dark fruits through the middle, a touch of spice with rustic, grainy tannin and earthy flavours skirting the edges. Finishes dark, rugged and spicy. Plenty of interest! Picked at optimum ripeness from the Watervale vineyard and matured in French oak, this wine shows the elegance and restraint of this cool site.

James Halliday's Wine Companion

Violet, anise and nori seaweed scents rule uber blueberry, mulberry and a skein of peppery acidity, threading itself through the eye of reduction. Everything is on song. In tune. Nothing excessive. Pulpy, joyous and delicious.
