Tasting Notes

 Mike Bennie Wine Front...Tasted March 2017  Rating 93  Drink 2017- 2030

Redesdale Estate seems to have some mojo...one of those fly-under-the-radar boutique producers but, what I have seen of recent releases, worth paying attention to.

Pepper, cinnamon, clove, spice- super spicy bouquet. The fruit is in the stewed Xmas cake spectrum, but that spice lifts things to a hearty freshness. Smooth, dark fruit concentration, choc-berry, lick of gum leaf and green herbs, fine, firm tannin finish (that rolls on). Lovely, ultra firm, but gradually building pucker to close, actually. This has an elegant bent. Very good.

James Halliday - Wine Companion.   Tasted April 2016   Rating 91   Drink to 20128

Hand picked, wild fermented, whole bunches, open vats, 12 months on new and used French oak,not fined nor filtered.A rich and powerful full-bodied Shiraz, still in primary mode,; densely textured, but no bitter extract or rough tannins. Screw cap 14.4%alc.

Mauro Bortolato, Head Sommelier Glass Brasserie - Tasted February 2017

Perfumed- violets, dark fruit- plums. Concentrated, slightly earthy, powerful tannins, rich, lush. Pretty, powerful tannins.
