This is an elegant, energetic and spicy Shiraz that drinks beautifully either now or over the next few years.

The Wine Front

"A luminous purple Block 5, infused with crunchy black plum and blueberry fruit, laced with white pepper and structured with finely textural tannins. It unites depth with elegance, and achieves dignified line and length rarely bottled at this price." - Tyson Stelzer (Tyson Stelzer's Australian and New Zealand Wines of the Year 2017) 92 points."Has that svelte, cool, fine feel – red fruits, light peppery spice, lick of fennel/mint cool herbs, succulence in tannin, good length to taste. Red fruits to sniff on, pretty as can be, more dusting of pepper and a faint herbal note too. It’s close to silky in texture as it slides around the palate. It’s easy to like, has some finesse. Nice work. Nice drinking." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
