Tasting Note

A layered & thought-provoking blend inspired by the Rhône Valley. The underlying rich medley of fresh & roasted stone fruit is laced with toast and spice, with a crisp zesty hit of ginger on the lingering finish. A sophisticated wine ready to drink now with the ability to age well.

93 Points

“Barossa blend of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne. Snuffed candle and the wax, honeysuckle, stonefruit, tangerine and spice. Here be flavour with crunch and texture, cool tang to the acidity with flint through wax and saltine cracker complexity. Layers of flavour, plenty of length, and all round good drinking to be had. Good fruit, sure, but inspired winemaking too.”

Gary Walsh, The WINEFRONT.


92 Points | Great Value

“Sourced from the estate’s Bethany and Stonewell vineyards, this is crafted with the white triumvirate of the Rhone: marsanne, viognier and roussanne. Whole-bunch pressed, with a lick of skin contact and partial barrel work, the result is good with the caveat of edgy oak. Otherwise, toasted nut, lanolin, curd, apricot pith and rooibos tea, all managing to stand out from the oaky edges”.

Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion 2020


“Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne blend. Complex, enticing aromas with pears & apricots, silky smooth luscious palate with loads of flavour & a great refreshing finish. VERY CLASSY!!”
