91 POINTS - 2022 Winestate Magazine’s Wines of Victoria Wine Show
"This is a smooth-skinned red wine with everything in exactly the right place. It’s not necessarily complex but it’s harmonious, flavoursome and silky-smooth, and at the same time fresh with fruit. Vanilla and plum flavours are the wine’s mainstays; whispers of sweet spice and mint give it that bit more. From all angles this is enjoyable and, indeed, very good." 92 points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
VINEYARD REGION: Heathcote
THE WINE: The nose displays intense plum and dark cherry aromas, beautifully integrated with hints of white pepper. The rich and concentrated palate is full of plummy fruit flavours . The wine was matured for 18 months in American oak barrels, and has the tannin and fruit structure to mature gracefully in bottle for up to 15 years from vintage.
FOOD MATCHES: It’s excellent with all grilled food, be it red meat, poultry, fish or vegetables.
