"Black olive and toasted cumin notes are aromatic and add a savory note to the licorice, plum and blackberry core. There's a fresh, juicy quality, and velvety tannins that firm up pleasantly on the finish. Drink now through 2027. 1,480 cases made, 250 cases imported. -MW" (WS)

"This is more in the spectrum of redcurrants and dried red plums in terms of aromas. It also sports some light herbal elements such as cedar and spices. Full body, medium chewy tannins and a slightly confected finish. Drink now. Screw cap." (JS)

"This is a plump, fruity Shiraz that many a rich red wine lover can get behind. Plump, bramble berry, black licorice root, violet and cedar lead the way, while the palate is supple and velvety in texture. Finely knit, spicy tannins hold the wine afloat,. Drink now–2028. -Christina Pickard" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Deep ruby, purple in colour, quickly revealing inviting creamy dark berry fruit aromas. Whilst these fruit aromas show depth and intensity, they also have a vibrancy and brightness. On the palate, a smooth mouth-filling attack of layered dark plums, blackcurrant and chocolate notes is surrounded by a super fined tannin frame. This ensures a genuine sense of softness and balance to the wine as it travels through the palate with the fruit presence rolling to the back end through a veiled frame. Reasonably coiled in its youth we would expect this wine to open up further over the next few years.
