“From an outstanding vintage this 100% Syrah from their Gimblett Gravels vineyard is formidable and completely delicious, combining fruit power and stylish elegance. Aromas of Black Doris plum, mixed spice, cedar, black olive and floral on the nose. It is concentrated and dense, yet silky and flowing, offering impressive fruit richness and texture, leading to an extremely long finish. The wine is firmly structured by sturdy tannins, ensuring its gradual development.”

“Deeply scented Syrah with plum, dark berry, chocolate, liquorice, coffee, mocha, black pepper and subtle violet flavours. A vibrant, high energy wine that's delicious to drink now but promises to deliver much more with bottle age.”

“ight, intense, coiled Syrah. Pepper and woodsmoke to the gills and boasting an appropriate complement of concentrated black berried fruit too. Nutty. Smoky. A touch of animale. Bold, particularly in a regional context. A wide, dominating sweep of tannin. This is a wine with a 1000 mile stare; it has the long term on its mind. It's not hard to be enamoured.”
Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front, 2016
