A myriad of cherries, mulberries and blood plums provide the framework on the nose, with camphor, cumin, anise, and toasted fennel seed in the background. Subtle cacao and cracked coffee bean combine with elevated notes of lavender. The palate is fine with structural tannins and bright acidity. Again, cherries and mulberries are present with savoury oak char and subtle dark chocolate within.

95/100

"Another release showing the dramatic evolution of this variety. It's mostly shiraz with a small amount of malbec. Intense aromas of spices and cloves with savoury oak. The palate has a firmish gravelly character with grainy tannins in support. The oak has been handled with care and works well to allow the fruit sweetness to marry with the savoury characters. Really attractive wine."
