Double Gold Medal

China Wine & Spirits Awards 2015

 

Gold Medal/95 points 

Tastings World Wine Championships 2015
Bright dark opaque black garnet colour. Bright, fruity, medicinal aromas and flavours of blueberry gelato, alpine herb lozenge, and chocolate mint wafer with a silky, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-full body and a warming, long dried apricot, spiced nuts, and herbs finish with crunchy tannins and moderate oak. A deliciously zesty and mouth-watering shiraz.

Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Age Epicure, 1st March 2016

A friendly red that opens with ripe berries, gentle spice and milk- chocolate aromas, followed by succulent flavour and mellow texture dovetailing into fine, ripe tannins.

4 1⁄2 stars

Winestate Magazine, July/August 2016, p. 139

Tobacco and spice lift off the nose and the long, well-balanced palate has a lovely roundness with good fruit cake-like flavours with a slight leafiness.
