"The back label puts it succinctly: 'this is the best value blend of Barossa Valley shiraz I can make each year.' The bouquet is super-fragrant, the medium-bodied palate vibrant and fresh, the flavours circling red and black fruits, multi-spices, a touch of black licorice, and the tannins judged to perfection.” 95 points, James Halliday. Also gets a 'Special Value’ award.
Included in Halliday’s Top 100 Wines for 2016
"Unusual sophistication at this price point for a Barossa Shiraz. It’s not an ooze monster, not at all. It’s fine and spicy, almost bony in structure with firm grainy tannin, blueberry and floral/apricot perfume, pan juices and crisp cut of acidity. Finish is dry, meaty and spicy, with a vapour trail of sweet blue fruit. Likely better again with another year in bottle (which it now is!).” 92 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
