“Deep red with Burgundy colours. Aromas of rhubarb, raspberry, pink musk, Turkish delight and candied orange peel. Full bodied and supremely textured with layers of sweet red fruit flavours. Dense, long and chewy tannins that coat the mouth endlessly. One for the patient cellar. Drink from 3 years for up to 20 years.” Winemaker’s notes.
“Contemplative wine this one, and much like grand Pinot Noir, of which it shares a certain weight and perfume, it really evolves and shifts around with time in glass. Turkish delight perfume dusted with pepper and dusty exotic spices, raspberry and ripe strawberry, raw almonds, pears poached in red wine studded with clove and cinnamon, and a host of other things, real or imagined. Light to medium bodied, rippling with tone and muscle, funk and spice, slaty tannin and dryness, then that kiss of red fruits and perfume. It’s pretty, and tough at the same time. Takes some time and effort to get to know, though certainly it’s worth the effort. Quite outside the mainstream of Australian wine too, which is no bad thing. Real vinosity and verve”. 96 points. Gary Walsh. The Wine Front.
This is a superb wine worth every cent. In years to come you’ll laugh at the price you paid for a wine of this quality. I know I’d take several bottles of this over a single bottle of our more famous wines any day.
