 "Best's ancient clone and clone 1654, plus 2% viognier, 15% whole bunches, closed fermenters for 8 days, then pressed to used oak for 12 months maturation. How can 2% viognier give the wine the exotic perfume it has, and the ravishingly seductive palate? The answer is that it's the shiraz, not the viognier.

A little bit of viognier and a little whole bunch action too, I believe. It’s a ripper wine to drink. Please can I have some more please. It tastes of peppercorns, black cherries, fresh ripe plums, florals and smoky oak. It’s more-ish, it has a fine-grained tannic backbone, the fruit is sound and it carries a sappy, bunchy savouriness too. In short it’s absolutely spot on. I’d buy/drink it in a heartbeat.

"Very attractive and vibrant red berries with spices and peppery nuances in abundance. The palate has a very silky, fleshy and juicy edge with spicy raspberry and red-plum flavors, set amongst silky, ribbon-like tannins."
