"Strong release from arguably ‘the’ stalwart, premier cabernet of Coonawarra. It’s set to 13.4% alcohol, restraint, finesse from 2015. I remember when I remembered that these wines were bold, big, power and presence orientated, or maybe that was projected. This has the clout of Coonawarra packed into a svelte frame. It’s gorgeous.

Succulent, just medium bodied red of impossible glide, finely wrought tannins, impressive length and a general sense of that inimitable ‘detail’ that great wines have. There’s salt bush and bramble-greenery scents woven through dark berries, cassis, subtle malt-chocolate oak notes and a whiff of pretty eucalyptus. The wine sits with stoic shape and authority in the palate, a tight sluice of dark fruit sheen with more of the salt bush, green herb and light cedar character. Seamless. Regal. Beautiful. Will live long. Kudos."

"Classic faintly minty long-term Coonawarra cabernet with pristine, vivacious fruit, handsome oak and fine, polished tannins."
