"A very full-bodied, powerful vintage for this wine, which showcases classic Coonawarra crushed leaf, tobacco, raspberry & blackcurrent aromas. Its big, dense & concentrated, finishing with a crescendo of tannin. A stonking cabernet. Cellar it 3-23 years."

"The colour is quite deep with a subtle tinge of purple, suggesting some early development, while the bouquet is similarly developed and shows tobacco, crushed leaf, raspberry and blackcurrant aromas. There's a tinge of tomato bush too. The palate is very full-bodied, concentrated and dense, with chewy texture and loads of extract. The tannins are very evident but not unbalanced. It demands patience, and will age for the long-term."


 

The Real Review


 

"Finally 2015 First Growth is, as you might expect, very detailed and very grand. While not a very much bigger wine, in terms of framework than Terra Rossa, this is an immensely finely wrought model with layer upon layer of extravagant blackcurrant fruit and heavenly leather and carpentry notes in all of the right places."
