"Raspberry, cherry, vanilla, toasted coconut and Asian spices with a distinctly saucy aspect. Medium bodied, juicy and plump, but with that savoury Barossa coal character, for want of a better description, to temper. There’s well pitched acidity and supple fine grained tannin, along with good length. Altogether tasty and enjoyable." Gary Walsh
