- RATED A PERFECT FIVE RED STAR WINERY BY JAMES HALLIDAY
- COOL CLIMATE SINGLE VINEYARD ESTATE GROWN VICTORIAN SHIRAZ
- AWARD WINNER MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL WINE COMPETITION 2015
Deep red/purple colour, bright. The bouquet is also bright and fresh and youthful, with pepper, spices and sweet raspberry, with a patina of smoky charcuterie. It's medium to full-bodied and rich in very ripe fruit, the latter very sweet and almost jammy on the mid-palate and finish. A bold, somewhat in-your-face wine, with slightly rustic tannins and plenty of obvious flavour
95 Points James Halliday Wine Companion
"Lays it on. Cool climate in its flavour profile but at the plushest end of the spectrum. Blueberry, blackberry and black cherry with green fennel, pepper and violets. The full gamut. Saucy oak plays an (integrated) role too. Provokes the phrase 'riot of flavour'. Can be cellared but it's a 'why wait' wine."

Melbourne International Wine Competition 2015
Premium parcels of hand picked shiraz fruit was delivered to the winery at approximately 14 baume. It was decided that fermentation of a small portion of whole bunch should be undertaken to provide structure and the balance de-stemmed. The next step was to choose a vessel for maturation and so it was a 600 litre concrete egg was filled and the balance matured in a combination of stainless steel tank and plastic tank. A minimal intervention approach and early bottling is the key to capturing the essence of the vineyard.
