- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION
- QUITE AMAZING FOR A SUB $20 RED - WINE PILOT
Bright crimson purple in colour. Clean and fragrant aromas with intense black fruits, bay leaf & a hint of violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied, & awash with juicy blackcurrant pastille & dark fruit characters; fresh, balanced acidity; ripe, fine tannins & a persistent satisfying finish. Best enjoyed over the next five to eight years.

"Predominantly cabernet sauvignon, followed by merlot, with small amounts of cabernet franc/malbec/ petit verdot. Matured for 12 months in French oak (12% new). Juicy, bright, vibrant and delicious. What more do you want at this price?"

'A blend of 62.6% cabernet sauvignon, 18.5% merlot, 7.8% cabernet franc, 7.4% malbec, 3.7% petit verdot, from Margaret River, with all of the parcels fermented separately in a mix of open and closed fermenters, spending between 8 and 21 days on skins. Then 12 months in barrels, with 12% of that new French oak.
Absolutely delicious and quite amazing for a sub-$20 red – wonderful value. Colour of bright crimson before aromas of spice and a gravelly note. Florals, red fruits, some mulberries too and then a lovely choc/cherry character takes over with pleasing aromatics throughout. The palate is soft with decent length and juicy acidity. And if all this was not enough, a note of strawberries emerges on the finish. This is for drinking now but it won’t mind if you do happen to put a few away for a year or two.'
