Made from grapes grown in Orange/Gundagai, the former framing the style; light- to medium-bodied and elegant, with cherry fruit, fine tannins and subtle oak. Delicious early drinking.

By picking the regions and varieties to blend with their shiraz you can expect something different each year although black pepper is a common theme.

These guys have made a bit of a splash in recent years -and not just in the winery. They have produced some spiffy chardonnay and have been selling it at even spiffier prices. This shiraz is none too shabby either. It's soft and fruity and easy to drink, and at this price we're not sure we want much more than that! It tastes of plums and chocolate, and we'd rate it higher if the flavours lingered a touch longer after we'd swallowed. (Hey, we're paid to be fussy.) Velvety tannins, though, and a good drink.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Plenty of sweet fruit flavour in a black fruit spectrum, oak a minor player in the orchestra. Big Rivers/Gundagai.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Powerful, robust wine with black fruits and plum; plenty of tannins and structure; considerable ageing potential; very good price. Big Rivers/Gundagai.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
A mix of spice, briar, leather and black fruits; balanced tannins and oak. Big Rivers and Gundagai.
