Item Code: ITM7726
“Mellow perfume of blue and black berry fruits, bay leaf, pepper, mint, undergrowth. Soft sigh across the palate then tannins and herbal character weave through to a fine tug of tannin. I like the little detail in spice, wood and earthiness, but its that gentle fruit sweetness and sheets of softness to texture that woo most. Not particularly complex, but it’s a lovely, lovely thing to drink.” Mike Bennie

"It’s pure Margaret River. Gravel and blackcurrant, bay and cream. It rumbles and grumbles, as it seduces. There’s perfume aplenty, texture too, sets of tannin and a long filigreed finish. Reduction, toast, choc-mint, florals, black olives; all make appearances here. The cellar beckons." Campbell Mattinson

Item Code: 29832
"It’s a beauty. It’s perfectly put together. It’s rich with berried fruit flavour and grunty with tannin; both at appropriate levels, both seductive in their own way. Minted, foresty berries with chocolate and woodspice characters. Maybe some herbs. It all just flows, it all just works. And it lingers. It’s made to last/cellar but it’s so well balanced, and so juicy with fruit, that it can be enjoyed now." Campbell Mattinson
