Details

"It puts on a good show of cedar wood, blackcurrant, mulberry and bay leaf-like flavour. It's medium in weight and well-balanced overall. and looks set to mature well into the medium term and beyond. Not a hair out of place."

"Intense, with laser-like focus, the powerful fruit has been paired to fine oak and winemaking. Very long, with taut acidity and fine, if prominent tannins. Needs a decade or two in the cellar, or an hour or two in a decanter."


18.7/20

- Barry Weinman, Fine Wine Club


 

 

"... a sleek, red-fruited, beauty. It is already in liquid velvet mode with smooth, plummy Cabernet working its magic in the glass. This vintage tastes like they have uprooted the Cabernet vines and dropped them into the Chardonnay vineyards for one vintage only! It is so silky and tempting and this is another wine which echoes the beauty found on its stunning label designed by Helen Eager."

- Matthew Jukes, Matthew Jukes 100 Best Australian Wines 2019/20


"... a classic Western Australian cabernet with dark currant and berry flavours front and centre of both nose and palate with some tobacco leaf notes and an intense core. There is 97% cabernet and 3% malbec. A wine of style and substance. History suggests this well cellar brilliantly."


- Winsor Dobbin, Winsor's Choice, May 2019


 

"Very understated on the nose with dried strawberries, fresh herbs, tea leaves, tea tree oil, cassis and red plums and cinnamon with a slight overlay of vanilla. On the medium-bodied palate, this also starts subtly with red-plum flavors, but then the structure builds with a tannin crescendo and driven acidity, lifting this through to a long finish. So elegant and refined. Drink now. Screw cap."
