With all the wines we offer having passed an extremely tough Tasting Panel, it’s never a surprise to see them recognised by Australia’s premier critic. But it’s always nice nonetheless. Each of these featured drops has earned a minimum of 90 points from James Halliday.
A bold bouquet of cassis, cigars and cedar continue onto the palate. Full-bodied fruit characters and long, board tannins coat the mouth before ending with a persistent finish. A classic Caberent of flavour and balance.

"Deep, healthy colour; a very powerful full-bodied cabernet that has repaid the investment in the vineyard and winery. Blackcurrant/cassis, bay leaf, dried herbs and cedary oak come through the vigour and purity on the finish. Give it a decade and you'll have a great wine, then double up for another decade." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM15508
Dark cherry red in colour with purple hues, this wine presents a fragrant fruit driven nose with hints of dried herbs and violets. On the palate rich raspberry, blackberry and cassis fill the mouth while undertones of mint, cedar and spice add a savoury edge. Firm tannins create excellent balance and lead to a long, elegant finish.
Item Code: ITM4678
"Soft, almost pillowy cabernet with a wealth of berried fruit flavour and sound, juicy, flowing length. Ticks boxes all along the way. Threads of bay leaves and assorted dried herbs run through fine-grained tannin. Will work equally well either now or later." Halliday Wine Companion
