“Pure, unalloyed McLaren Vale – those who say Australian wines cannot speak of their place are ignorant fools – notwithstanding the 66/34% blend, malbec not common in the Vale. From its vibrant colour to its plum, raspberry and dark chocolate flavours, this is a wine to enjoy with gusto.” Posted: July 27th 2014. James Halliday Wine Companion

  • Rating: 92
  • Drink By: 2016
  • Price: $35.00
  • Date Tasted: 06 Jan 2014
  • Alcohol: 14%

“An especially challenging vintage for Mataro/Mourvèdre, but this has done surprisingly well; the red berry fruits are ripe, and unchallenged by tannins; the result is a most attractive wine for early drinking.” Posted: July 27th 2014. James Halliday Wine Companion

“A fragrant, ethereal and oak-augmented nose that has significant sweet spice with black and blue fruits below, quiet fragrant, alluring and bright, some charcuterie too. The palate is supple, focused and open, the same fruit oak dynamic repeats here, tannins are long and fine, dark plum flavours run deep, all nicely balanced. Drink younger.” Nick Stock – 92/100

“Very good hue, although not deep; a spicy, savoury substrate to the precise black and red fruits, the amalgam of flavours all within a narrow compass. Will open up with time as the components loosen.” Posted: July 27th 2014. James Halliday Wine Companion
