    TOP GOLD MEDAL

    Royal Adelaide Wine Show – 2018


    JAMES HALLIDAY’S TOP 100 WINES
    95 Points
    “Shiraz, grenache and mataro sourced from some of the 150yo vines on the estate. The price is extremely low for a wine with such history. Red, blue and black berry fruits are woven together by a gently savoury film of tannins and subtle oak justifying the choice to drink it now or much later”.
    James Halliday


    “The embodiment of modern Barossa SGM, uniting the juicy persona of classic old vines with the crunchy tang of an al dente harvest and the fragrant, herbal lift of strategically deployed whole bunch fermentation. The result is playfully enticing, bucket loads of fun and eminently tapas-ready.”
    Tyson Stelzer

     



    “Medium to full red to brick-red colour with the merest tinge of purple, the bouquet is subtle and earthy with spicy notes and a plummy edge. It’s admirably fruit-driven. Peppery mataro is evident. The wine is medium-weight at best and savoury, with some forward-development evident. It’s ready now, fairly mellow, beautifully balanced and very pleasant drinking.”
    Huon Hooke
