Expert Reviews

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
The generous, up-front blackberry and blackcurrant fruit of 2010 finds a particularly refined composure in the hands of Tash Mooney. The restrained, honed and textured finish is her trademark.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Strong purple-red; has an expressive bouquet, with dark cherry ex the Adelaide Hills tempranillo and blackcurrant ex the Barossa cabernet; these two streams flow through the generous and juicy palate, tannins perfectly balanced to give structure. Will develop well in bottle.

Hello Flash Gordon! It takes all the Wonderwoman superpowers of Tash Mooney to conjure a red wine of such heroic precision, complexity and structure. You can snaffle it for $15 at 1st Choice. By George!

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
This groovy inter-regional blend is pacing well; still very much on the make, it has started to knit itself close together. Shows the strength of the 2006 vintage with attractive, dark, toasted spices and cedary oak drenched in ripe purple berry fruit. Impressive ripe, sinewy tannins, really dense and fine, trailing smooth and even through the finish.

Bright purple-crimson; the flavours and textures come together surprisingly well, cassis, blackcurrant and mulberry, with fine, ripe tannins providing the length.

Blackcurrants waft from the nose and lively berry and spice flavours fill the mouth.

Cassis and cherry fruit bouquet with an element of fresh herbs and spice; the palate is generous and warm, and shows a nice synergy between these two varieties and regions.

Blends like this are part of the future of Australian wine unusual blends that almost no-one else in the world does, but which work terrifically. Hats off to fox Gordon here. 2005 RELEASE The 2004 of this was really good, though I though the alcohol level was a little too high. No such problem here. This is a firm, tasty, chewy red, full of flavour and personality. Flavours of fennel, blackcurrant, dried herbs and malt. It's fresh, dark, weighty and deeply, deeply satisfying, DRINK 2008-2013.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
An unusual array of aromas of spice, lavender and heather persist into the palate; good texture, line and flow; demonstrably unusual.
