Elegant structure, complexity, depth of quality fruit, balance and longevity are the key goals.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"This estate block was planted in '73. The wine includes 5.5% petit verdot, 3.5% malbec and 3% merlot, all hand-picked, up to 36 days on skins, matured for 18 months in French barriques (50% new). An utterly exceptional cabernet, as intense as it is elegant with great mouthfeel ex superfine tannins. It's the lightness and brightness that are the candles on the cake." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

James Suckling

"An exceptionally defined and concentrated wine with deeply ripe, cabernet black cherries and plums with roasting herbs and a tarry edge. The palate has majestically strong and rich tannins with black-cherry and dark-chocolate flavours, holding the long finish. A blend of 92% cabernet sauvignon, 3.9% petit verdot, 2.5% malbec and 1.6% cabernet franc. Drink now. Screw cap" - James Suckling

The Wine Front

"It’s cooler, tighter, and more controlled than some recent vintages, and none the worse for it. Dense wine of traction and intensity, dark cherry, blackcurrant, aniseed, seaweed, dark chocolate, dried herbs, and baking spices. It’s fresh, almost chalky tannin of wide grain and grip, fruit sweetness with tobacco savoury things happening. Finish is long, tannic and firm. It has energy and concentration. Cellaring potential is high." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?
