Expert Reviews

Mike Bennie says
Savouriness meets dark berry fruit, and the perfume shows joyous and fruity to sniff. It's a wine that offers both drinkability and enough structure to feel fancy and fun at once, revelling in the meaty side of mourvedre, yet not shy of just showing the essence of varietal flavour.

Deep crimson-purple; a powerful wine, skilfully made to allow the red berry fruit of the mourvedre full expression while keeping the tannins under control; has very good length and balance.

The spoils of a tiny two-acre patch planted on sandy ironstone gravel soils. It s a brooding, tarry style with dark plum and licorice fruit aromas, some spicy oak and plum essence here too. The palate s beautifully rich and oozes lovely depth, really sanguine tannin, blood plum flavour and a solid plum stone finish here. Terrific.

The block this was grown on is only two acres in size, another example of how tiny - boutique, if you like - most of the individual components of the Australian wine community are. Australian wine is nothing like the industrial playground it is sometimes depicted as. It has a sweet, raisiny, vanillin profile, power and complexity. Plus, more simply, it's very bloody tasty! Flavours of aniseed, raisins, boysenberries, earth and leather are overlaid with a glide of vanillin, almost coconut-like oak. It needs another year of rest inside the bottle, but it's excellent, sweet-centred, fresh-faced drinking. A big red.
