5 Stars Winestate Magazine July 2015
A nice rich chocolaty / oaky style but also has plenty of depth and length of rich blackcurrant fruit pushing through and showing a lovely herbaceousness with a defined line of acid

91 Points Halliday Wine Companion 2017 Deep, bright crimson-purple; has luscious fruits with clear varietal expression, here putting cassis upfront on the stage, the orchestra in the pit in front providing plush texture and structure. Drink to 2028.

2012

So far the 2012 vintage has put a decent bounce in many a cabernet/regional relationship, and considering Langhorne Creek’s long history, with it having produced many major vineyards, it’s great to see this small family unit turning on its own charms with booming dark fruit notes, a touch of eucalypt in the shadows and genuine cabernet textures.

There’s a lot to admire in this medium-full bodied shiraz: its colour, black fruit and earthy/foresty bouquet and its full-on savoury palate with licorice and chocolate adding to the impact. Drink to 2027.

Deep purple-crimson; has multiple layers of blackberry, liqueur plum and fruitcake on the full-bodied, yet soft, palate; drink at any time over the next 20+ years. James Halliday, James Halliday Wine Companion 2013.

2008 

5 Stars Winestate Magazine September/October 2011 nose is a complexity of blackberry, clove and licorice aromas. Palate brimming over with glorious sweet, ripe berry fruit matched by nutty cedar oak and some medicinal notes.

2007 

5 Stars Winestate Magazine September/October 2010 big, voluptuous wine – very stylish. Lovely quality cedary oak sitting on top of spicy, plum pudding-like fruit with chocolaty/nutmeg characters threaded through. Another keeper.

A lively fusion of springtime red flowers and fruits with a few violets poking their noses through; positively delicate mouthfeel is most attractive.  Drink to 2020.

2012

Good crimson-purple hue; a generous, medium to full-bodied wine; the flavours span satsuma plum, Morello cherry and spice, the tannins fluffy and soft.

2008

A little-known Italian red variety that offers a great deal of tantalising flavours centred around a basket of spices and some crushed tobacco leaf notes and a few red grapes scattered here and there. 91 James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2012

Dense colour; while the wine is seriously concentrated, the balance – and in particular a relatively dry finish the Portuguese would understand – is impressive; spicy characters also enliven the back – palate and finish.
