Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Quite developed colour; the spicy/earthy chocolate aromas and flavours seem more akin to McLaren Vale than the Fleurieu; pleasant wine, nonetheless.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A potent mix of blackberry, dark chocolate, spice and black pepper followed by very firm tannins which will take years to soften; the components are in balance.

Clean and aromatic; a supple array of blackberry, licorice, chocolate and spice aromas and flavours; fine, savoury tannins.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; dark plum and bitter chocolate aromas are woven through subtle oak on the bouquet; the palate has sweet, dark plum and blackberry in a dark chocolate coating; ripe tannins and good oak complete a delicious wine with years in front of it.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red, the purple starting to fade a little, suggesting that the wine may develop reasonably quickly. The bouquet is quite complex, with savoury/briary overtones to the fruit, and nicely controlled oak. The palate is similarly powerful, with pleasingly savoury tannins giving the wine a European touch; carries its 14° alcohol well.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Full red-purple; rich, dark cherry, plum and liquorice fruit aromas are supported by subtle oak. The full, powerful and fleshy palate has a lovely core of fruit surrounded by soft, almost silky, tannins and excellently balanced and integrated oak.
