Reviews

James Halliday 2018

Rating: 94 Points

An 81/19% blend matured in new and used French oak for 18 months. Fragrant blackcurrant/cassis aromas set the compass for a medium-bodied wine that has a delicious stream of cassis and plum running down the middle of the palate with no need to even think about interference from tannins Now to: 2030

Ray Jordan West Australian Wine Guide 2018

Rating: 92 Points
Here is all you want in a Margaret River cabernet merlot blend. Deep and powerful blackcurrant with rich dark plum and cedary characters. Palate is loaded with opulent fruit intensity, balanced by some neat tight grained oak and fine chalky tannins. Smooth and seamless and thoroughly drinkable. Cellar 7 years
