Expert Reviews

James Halliday                      Wine Companion

“Follows Bailey Carrodu’s method of co-fermenting small amounts of Viognier, Marsanne adding floral notes, and Mataro adding spice. It’s another exquisite wine from ’17, capturing all the senses immediately you access the bouquet and palate. It’s only just into medium-bodies territory, but it’s mouth-watering in its intensity, red fruits flying high like a gaudy scarlet kite.”

Score:  99/100


Huon Hooke               The Real Review

“Deepish red colour with purple timt and a reserved bouquet of red and darker fruits, laced with subtle spices. A hint of oak char. It’s medium to full bodied and very elequant in the mouth, with fine grained tannins and some appealing cinnamon nuances to the mixed spice aromatics. The wine has a refined, silky texture and glides through the mouth. Red cherry and raspberry fruit flavours predominate. It’s not a big wine, but the aftertaste lingers on for a very long time. Outstanding! (Shiraz co-fermented  with white grapes)”

Score:  97/100


Nick Stock                  The Wine Front

“A firm and silky-tannined red that has such polish, richness and beaty. Lots of spice and fruit-tea character, as well as plums and berries. A blend of 95% shiraz, 3% mataro, 1% viognier and 1% Marsanne.”

Score:  96/100
