Tasting Notes

Christian Maier  Tasted October 2015        Heathcote Region rating 9/10

Good ripeness- very black fruit. A good backbone of ripe tannins. Generous but ultimately very elegant, with balance between fruit tannins and acidity. Doesn’t show its age but has great class...fine grained tannins and good structure

James Halliday     Tasted March 2010  Rating 92

Good hue; a severe Cabernets, the fruit and tannins joining together to cause a mouth puckering reaction. Then the pure varietal expression of the two cabernets is obvious. Time will soften the impact without diminishing the fruit.

James Bone Sept.2009

The wine shows restraint and poise, then some excellent primary red fruit character. Hints of blood plum, cassis and cranberry reveal themselves. The tannins are firm, the acid shows all the signs of a wine that will age well for 10 to 15 years.
