- HIGHLY RATED HUON HOOKE THE REAL REVIEW
Good fruit concentration dominated by a brambled fruit core and peppery spice, with sublime elegance. Juicy fresh acidity and gentle tannin profile . The palate finishes clean and fresh, with good length.
92 Point Rated - Ken Gargett Wine Pilot
"The spice-laden Shiraz that Western Australia can offer is so often lost between the cracks of their wonderful Cabernet and Chardonnay. A shame, because there really are some worthy wines, different to the big, bold South Aussies but nothing wrong with that. Here, the fruit was destemmed crushed into fermenters, while it underwent twice daily pumpovers. Malo was in oak, followed by maturation.
Deep maroon hue, we open with dark berries but there is also an earthy, slightly rustic note – some will love that, while those that prefer things all correct and pristine possibly a fraction less so. Plenty of spice notes here, including a whiff of pepper. Personally, the wine just screamed to be matched with a rare steak. The palate exhibited plummy notes and also some black and blue fruits with abundant but fine tannins. Good reach here and the intensity never flags. An attractive wine and it has promise for the future as well – expect it to improve over the next six to eight years."

"Fruit from Walcliffe and Rosa Glen. 15 months in French oak (15% new). Salted blackberry and savoury red fruits. The palate continues in this manner, throwing up bouquets of mulberry, blood plum and pink peppercorn. The tannins are firm and grippy, the oak leaving a clove bud character on the palate. Great intensity of flavour, but a bit of wrangling of the wild tannins would have elevated this."
Huon Hooke The Real Review
"Medium to deep ruby colour with just a trace of purple remaining. The aromas are reserved and floral with a meaty-charcuterie note and a hint of pepper. It's white-grapy floral and peppery at the same time—an intriguing wine. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a lean profile, with some firm tannins to conclude."
2019 was a long, cool vintage. It started off with a cooler than average spring and summer and this followed through vintage. Canopy management and attention to detail were key to getting fruit ripe and avoiding disease. Yields were low across the board. The results have been punchy aromatic whites, fine natural acidity, spicy shiraz and more elegant cabernets.
