Light coloured, an expressive bouquet with strawberry flowers, and light-bodied flavours in the same vein.Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
The Wine Front says
Pale salmon pink colour and pretty aromas leap from the glass. It has that wet rose petal scent with musk sticks, cinnamon/clove and wild berry fruit overlaid. It's a touch slippery in texture, just a hint of oiliness, with bright red berry fruit character, neat and lightly sloshed around the palate. There's some good mandariny acid tension too - it keeps the wine perky. The finish is stony and chalky, whipping things dry. Reset. This feels well crafted and cared for, an excellent summer wine but with substance and detail of mineral, fruit, acid and kind phenolic grippiness. Good stuff.Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, 18/10/2012.
