I had no hesitation in putting this wine into the reckoning for 100 Best on the very first sniff, because it is one of the most aromatically exciting and accurate wines in this report. Refreshing, cool blackcurrant leaf notes, with the faintest touch of rhubarb, excite the senses. Texturally this is a light red wine with bitter twist of red fruit and I adore this shape and size of flavour. I think people will chill it a touch, too, just to heighten the incredible whole bunch impact of those super-ripe stems on the perfume. MATTHEW JUKES, Top 100 Australian Wines of the Year

Blackcurrant, ripe raspberry, ash and lots of spice, sweet capsicum. Light bodied, but good intensity of small berried fruits, sappy green and spicy things are punctuation marks here, rather than text, acidity is fresh and slaty, tannin forms a fine dust, and the finish is cool and fresh. Great thing to drink. GARY WALSH, The Wine Front
