Rob Geddes MW (2011 Vintage) says
Complex with grapefruit like pyrazine and red fruit salad, plums and raspberry. Medium bodied soft tannins with length give way to rustic metallic firmness on the finsh. Brave try given the year. BBQ wine.

Lovely rendition of the variety in Australia - raspberry dusty dried currants. Lean compared to shiraz getting more fruit intense as the vines get older.

The versatility of the terroir of the Clare is on full parade here. Unlike many new world attempts, there’s no mistaking this wine for a shiraz, thanks to its honed structure, bitter dark chocolate notes and restrained, textured finish.

It is a small batch make but this is well worth seeking out, especially if you're travelling through the Clare Valley - it'd be a good find in a restaurant too. Bright, fragrant cherry and purple perfume on the nose, some gentle, spicy complexity and dark cherry flavour on the palate; easygoing tannins and terrific balance.

Light- to medium-bodied; in the mainstream of young tempranillo springing up all around Australia; a blend of red fruits, tamarillo and citrus.
