Grapes: Shiraz, Mataro, Viognier, Marsanne
A deeply structured palate, heavily laden with enticing fruit flavours of blackcurrants, olive and mint complimented with warm French oak. A Rhone Valley inspired wine offering finesse, richness and impeccable structure leading to a silky, magnificently long lasting finish.
James Halliday, Wine Companion 96 pts - A blend of shiraz, mataro, viognier and marsanne, shiraz the major player. The hue is excellent, the bouquet is fragrant, and the medium-bodied palate positively sings; the red fruits are wreathed in a web of fine spices, mainly fruit-derived, but in part from French oak. A lovely, unforced wine. Drink now or in 20 years time.
