    “This marks the continuing evolution of shiraz from Leeuwin Estate – this is pretty close to the best since the project to kick start this variety was launched some years ago. It has a sumptuous fruity mix on the palate with gravelly textured tannins and neatly weighted oak, which is a mix of new and slightly older. The new just adds a touch of spicy lift leaving the wine delicious and generous.”

    "There's plenty of white pepper, spice and blue fruit aromatics, really pretty, refined and inviting. The palate is mid-weighted, with a really delicious array of blue fruits, spice, bitter chocolate and firm, grippy, drying tannins that give the wine a lovely line, length and savouriness."
    93/100
