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.
Forest berry aromas with hints of floral notes. The palate is dry in style with vibrant acidity interwoven between pure raspberry and strawberry flavours, that ends with good persistence. A fresh and light wine that is still complex and satifying.

“Put this on your shopping list. Simultaneously sweet and savoury with red/black cherry, anise and boysenberry providing plenty of juicy flavour. That’s the thing: it serves fruit sweetness but then tempers it beautifully. Spice notes add to the show. Fantastic value in a Pinot Noir context.” Campbell Mattinson

“If this doesn’t fly off the shelves then something is awfully wrong. It’s brilliant drinking and value. Sweet black berries, licorice, menthol and florals. It’s all up front and it all goes down a treat. It’s made to pop and pour in the best of ways. Don’t cellar. Drink now. Done. Sorted.” Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM6475
“Volume of fruit, sweet and blackberried. All up front, all good, all bursting to impress. Anise and spice notes carry on with the seductive theme. There’s almost no oak flavour here to speak of, or not that I can tell, but given the generosity of the fruit there’s no need for it. No brainer territory. Most red wine drinkers will love this.” Campbell Mattinson
