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.

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.
