"There's a surprisingly elevated amount of vanillin oak here but if you give it time to breathe it settles into the wine nicely. It's beautifully textured, perfectly ripe, washed with drying, leathery tannin and juicy-to-the-point-of-citrussy (and indeed floral) through the aftertaste. Plums, mint, redcurrant and leather - that's the flavour profile. I was unsure of it at first but the longer I sat with it the more I admired."

"Very closed and slow to emerge, this old-fashioned, finely balanced and very stable shiraz certainly needs time in the cellar. Its deep, minty expression of blackberries, dark plums, currants and dark chocolate overlies spicy notes of clove and nutmeg, with a whiff of menthol. Supported by a very fine-grained and dusty spine of firm tannin, it gradually unfolds a penetrative array of dark fruit and a slightly awkward oak extract that needs time to integrate."
