"A grapey, highly aromatic shiraz, playing the reductive card with a deft hand. Lilac lift caresses blue fruits aromas all, a whiff of salty iodine and terrine, pushed to a svelte finish by an effortless flow of peppery acidity. This is the sort of shiraz I enjoy drinking: mid-weight, savoury, fresh and reminiscent of the every day expressions from the northern Rhone, embellished with Aussie fruit... 94pts" (Halliday).
