Supple and flavoursome, this old-fashioned Australia red ‘burgundy’ unfolds a pretty, floral perfume of sweet raspberries, cherries and redcurrants backed by suggestions of beetroot, cola and a whiff of pine needle. It’s medium in weight, with a long, smooth drive of sour-edged Morello cherries, dark plum and licorice underpinned by a drying, dusty spine. Wrapped in a vivacious acidity, it’s gentle to the touch but powerful in its delivery. Certain to flesh out further. JEREMY OLIVER

Crimson with a purple hue and a heady nose that is super floral, picy and complex. Plum, baked cherry, dried blueberry and savoury leaning red and dark berries are coloured by wild herbals, salted Dutch licorice, peppered meat and chocolate. A touch gamey.
Juicy, structured and full of flavour with a firm drive of sweet and boisterous red berries, cherry, raspberry cream, blood orange, anise, white pepper, rosemary and thyme. Great intensity and length, carried by a river of cherry/citrus acidity and held by a grip of confident tension. This will keep evolving with time.
An excellent wine and a new standard for Australian Pinot/Shiraz. MARK MALOUF, Wine Worth Writing About
