Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Winestate Magazine, Mar/Apr 2012
Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
This is a single-vineyard, Omaka Valley wine, hand-picked (mostly) and fermented and matured for nine months in French oak casks (partly new). The 2009 is weighty and creamy, with strong, ripe stone-fruit flavours, and mealy, buttery notes adding complexity. The 2010 is a powerful wine, very full-bodied (14.5 per cent alcohol), with fresh, rich, peachy, toasty flavours and a hint of butterscotch. Bold and generous, it's slightly wood-dominated at this stage, but has the fruit concentration to match.
