To bring together
94 points “This seems like a no-brainer: 49/35/16% shiraz/grenache/mourvedre made by ex-Grange winemaker John Duval. Krondorf and Tanunda for the shiraz; Moppa, Greenock, Ebenezer and Tanunda for the grenache and mourvedre from Ebenezer and Light Pass … decision made. It’s a cracker & weighted just-so and laden with sour cherry and red plum fruits, exotic spices, gingerbread, red licorice and earth. Swift of cadence and great savoury drinking.” Dave Brookes, Wine Companion, 6th July 2023
93 points “Slurpy, soft and easy drinking style with fresh, dark berry and cherry fruitiness writ large all dusted with sweet spice, choc-mint and green pepper. It’s largely about juiciness but fine, dusty tannins do play a textural role. It feels vibrant, lively, and despite that good with concentration and depth. It sets out to achieve drinkability and nails it”. Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, February 202
