Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
This wine is designed to be ready for drinking upon release, by selecting suitable sites and clones, and 'steering the fermentation towards more fruit expression and moderate tannins and structure'. The 2009 was matured for over a year in French oak barriques (10-20 per cent new). Ruby-hued, it is a 'serious', yet highly approachable, wine, mouthfilling, with rich flavours of cherries, spices and nuts, good concentration and complexity, and a well-rounded finish. The 2008 vintage is equally appealing, in a smoothly flowing, yet rich and complex, style, delicious now.

Made by Fromm, this wine is designed to be ready for drinking upon release, by selecting suitable sites and clones, and 'steering the fermentation towards more fruit expression and moderate tannins and structure'. The 2007 vintage was matured for over a year in French oak barriques (10-20 per cent new). Full-bodied, savoury and supple, it has cherry and spice flavours, showing excellent ripeness, depth, complexity and harmony. It's delicious now.
