96 Points “When 90% of the fruit comes off an Eden Valley ancestor vineyard (over 150yo) and 10% off old bushvines from northern Barossa, just take time to appreciate what’s in the glass. The wine unfurls with a heady elixir of sweet, briary fruit, gently spiced with a savoury overlay. It is lithe, not too big, yet flavoursome. Fine sandpaper tannins are perfectly poised and the acidity shines. Lovely drinking.” Jane Faulkner Halliday Wine Companion Aug 2020
95 Points “Deepish red colour with a modest tinge of purple. The bouquet is reserved and gently spiced, the palate medium to full-bodied and savoury, with ample but not excessive tannin and good balance. Oak is gently-handled and the wine has density and savouriness without compromising its immediate drinkability. There’s a neat core of sweet fruit buried within the savoury framework. It takes some time to open up and is worth the wait. (250 cases made).” Huon Hooke The Real Review Feb 2020
95 Points “Very floral, raspberry rope, raspberry, liqorice. Deep, but medium-bodied, flood of smooth and silty tannin, intensity of red fruit and spice flavour – the old velvet fog here – sage and perfume on an a long and polished finish. Hello. Highly styled and buffed, but the fruit is so good. Yes.” Gary Walsh, The Wine Front July 2019
